Introducing...

I would like to introduce you to Louise... I couldn't decide which way I wanted to decorate her...French, antique, or covered in lacy dollies...

so I was looking on The Graphic Fairy's website...(if you have never gone there, do, all her images are free and gorgeous) and I found this image of Louise. I fell in love with it, all the vintage roses, I knew then that was her name. So I covered her in vintage music, tore up wrapping paper, and antiqued her.

I am taking her to my space in town so I can sell jewelry off of her.
this is what she used to look like.

go to A Soft Place to Land for DIY day to view lots of projects...http://asoftplacetoland-kimba.blogspot.com/?id=1748%0D%0A

  1. Well I think Louise is just lovely :-) A beautiful transformation I should say. And may be an envy of town with her adorned with different kinds of jewelry :-) mmmm pearls.

    I was reading your Outdoor Wednesday post and yeah. That may just explain the term hot pink LOL.

    Mizpah,

  3. Oh she is just beautiful, you have done a really great job.
    I can't remember how I put my little siggie on the bottom of my blog posts now, I know my husband designed it for me but I can't remember how we got it so that it came up on every post, it is something behind the scenes though. Try doing a search for blog signatures & see if the 'how to' comes up.
    Sorry I can't be much more help, I really can't remember how we did it now.
    love
