Going a little Vintage

Soul scrappers Glee Club is into week 5- the genre is country Pop and there are a series of song titles you can use as the title of the LO. Lessons learned was one of these titles- to try and keep with a country pop theme ( this felt a little bit impossible to me) I added a woodgrain paper and if you look closely at my vintage ladies two of them have stetsons and one has teamed it with a swimsuit, high heels and a revolver! Plus they are vintage 50s style the era of the Western movie.

Why is it lessons learned- never try and take a good picture of my three together- fact it will not work even if you take 100 in a couple of hours! 227/365

October Afternoon have a challenge on their blog which is to throw in a little vintage- I thought I didn't have much vintage ephemera to add but I have a few old postcards I bought at a flea market in Amsterdam so i added one of those and some sheet music that came from the same flea market

The photo is of my Mum in about 1959 I love that it's a black and White photo that's been coloured.
Shimelle's sketch latest sketch is up on her blog and I just jumped right in and put a LO together this afternoon. There's some new Sassafras Lass paper in there and then some really old K and Co paper and another vintage postcard- I tend to start making a Lo and then work out what photo to use- I just lay this picture of Stanley on the LO to see if the size would work and realised it toned in perfectly with the papers- It's the back of Stanley's head taken at the weekend at the Botanical Gardens in Utrecht- It made me realise how much he needs to get a hair cut- hence the title 228/365
Here is Shimelle's sketch
