vintage inspiration...

For me, nothing strikes the inspiration nerve like an old photo.   My blog header photo of my mom's family is a good example, I love that photo, it's so full of happiness and you can just feel the love they share for eachother.  That is the love I grew up with.  I am blessed.
So when I find a photo that depicts that kind of love I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame and I just want to give it a new life.

This one spoke to me, I think they look like they share a promise of a new life with one another.
A bond. sometimes sparkly, sometimes somewhat tarnished, but a bond none the less.

where you promise your heart, as it sometimes dangles carelessly for all to see.

together, gathering the scraps, baubles and treasures that life throws your way...

with the hope of music always in your ears so that when the dance is over you still hear the violin.

I hope you dance...

I am linking this up to Vintage Inspiration Friday over @  Debra's!

  7. You said it beautifully! And your art is just as beautiful! I LOVE old photos too. I am so fortunate to have so many from my family. Even though I never knew many of the people I see in the pictures, I feel like I have a connection with them because of the photos.
