Stage right, The Vintage Moth. Stage left, The Graphics Fairy. Have you heard of these truly awesome sites? You can download beautiful vintage images for free!
I perused their lovely images and fell in love with alphabets and letters.
(Yes - I am bizarrely obsessed with fonts!)
Aren't these so cool?
I love this series of photos of my kiddos, and they will definitely be displayed in our next house.As they get older, I love this one below even more....this was probably 3 years ago and they've already changed so much!
But I digress.....
I saved the images and printed them out on heavy, flecked paper I had from back in the days of sending out resumes.
I opened up the frames, and used blue painter's tape to attach my "prints" right over the photo.
The blue tape has a low tack and is easy to remove without ripping the paper.
I tried this grouping:
I adore this "S" for our last name. It's a pen flourishing, not computer-generated like fonts today.
the botanical graphics caught my eye and I couldn't resist printing these out too!
The final grouping.....
I still like the enlarged "S" and am thinking of doing an eclectic wall of them in different fonts, frames and colors.
In the meantime, I'm loving my new botanicals - what do you think?
Not bad for a free, quick and easy makeover!
I'm linking to these great blogs today! Check them out for fabulous ideas and inspiration!
