For this week I'm choosing a golden oldie from my archives.
It is one of my earliest collages.

Such a sweet little girl, don't you think?

I'm still busy with cleaning up my pinterest boards, so I can't share the link to this vintage photo yet. But I did notice that the link to the corresponding blog is not working anymore. I hope I can share the photo of the girl later with you.

  12. I always enjoy your neutral posts and always wish I had something I could contribute. Alas I don't much work in neutrals it seems. Thought I had something this week, but a second look told me that it wasn't neutral enough. Oh well - I can love looking at everyone else's!

    Your collage in antique whites is delightful, and I look forward to visiting everyone's blogs to see what they have been creating and finding.

    Dorthe's collage is indeed splendid. I love the cracked paint heart for friendship. Such beautiful attention to detail!

    And Nancy's cards and notebooks are to die for! karen's bag is so sweet with its lace and frayed style. Thank you so much for hosting this party. I have found so much joy, inspiration and friendship here :)
