With spring stepping up to the plate here in South Carolina, my mind has turned to the gardening magazines, catalogs, etc with popping of my bradford pear tree. We moved into this 'old' new house a year ago this past week and have to say the original owner's planted some very beautiful flowering trees, hydrangeas, and alot of lilitrope but there is so much improvement yet to be done, I decided a garden journal was needed for this house. I dug out this kraft journal I had for years and scrounged in my vintage papers and such--then the beautiful image, although not vintage yet--only 11 years young, that I have been saving --this was it! You see this is the last blank note card I had left from my wedding. Perfect for this lifetime house we moved into last year. I really love the rustic of the burlap with the pearls, roses, and vintage inspired stamping. Sorry for the darkness--it's been raining for 4 days straight.
And a look at the inner page:
Then I decided I wanted my other favorite look--I used some of this vintage wallpaper I had been holding onto--just enough to fit the other half of the Kraft book.
Now --I should use one for the front yard and the other for the back yard! Oh well, it was fun and love making to different looks. Please visit Karla's blog for the rest of the links.
Off to tend to a sick little one--
