~ Vintage Strawberry Pin Cushions~

It's must be that time again with many strawberry stands here in this part of So.Cal filled with plump and juicy strawberries for pies and fresh jam.

With all those stands up I decided to set up a vignette to share with a collection of vintage strawberry pincushions That we have found throughout our travels here in So. Cal at some of our favorite shops.

I also used this antique oil painting of strawberries as a backdrop and some vintage gardening tools from the yard to dress it up a bit.

Thank You all for stopping by for a visit and have a good week treasure hunting at your local shops...............Tallulah Today I will be linking up to ~COLORADO LADY~

St.Valentines Day just around the corner. I decided to bring out our collection of Victorian 3-D cards. You can still find these wonderful cards at various antique shops and flea markets.

These were all made in Germany and date from 189Os-1915.

The ship and the little cherub riding the bike are my favorites. And I guess the fan, also. Lol

I also decided to use a couple of our rose oil painting's as a back drop for the vignettes of cards.

Theses lovey German die cuts on the fan are decorated with beautiful Victorian women and some pretty cool little heart faces.

This little guy standing is on carriage full of flowers, being pulled by two sweet turtle doves. What a beautiful card!

This little guy is taking a cart full of flowers to his little sweet heart. He is a busy little man. lol
And the card on the bottom has a little sister and brother with a dove cote full on doves in it. With some vintage heart shaped cookie cutters.

Thanks for stopping by today, and checking out our cards! For me Valentines comes everyday as I look in our cabinet where these wonderful cards are displayed through out the year for me to remember LOVE comes everyday. I would like to wish you and your love ones a "Happy Valentines Day"..............TALLULAH

~ ST. Valentines Cards~

With Valentines coming up in a couple of weeks I wanted to share some Victorian cards and a couple trinkets that we have come across during our little road trips here in California.

I just luv theses little delicate hand painted broaches. That women had painted as a hobby many years ago. I can just see a group of ladies painting theses little treasures and trying to figure out what color roses they were going to paint that day.

This little tin heart shaped box was a fun little find that I couldn't pass up. Lol I just adore that cute little face on the cherub. He looks like he is up to something. lol

I added theses Victorian perfume bottles with their red color and the delicate silver overlay for the vignette since the color was right for the occasion.

The vintage cards were made in Germany and England. They date from 1906-1910. some of them are from local towns here in Southern California and the notes in the back are cute.

I used theses little heart shaped pins and locket for this little vignette.

Well I guess Its time to get ready for before I'm late. lol Thank You all for stopping by today and hope you all have a beautiful weekend......................Tallulah Today I will be linking up to ~FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE~
