My Hip Parents

A few days ago I found this site that shows people's parents back when they were in their prime coolness! I absolutely love all the pictures on this site and I could spend hours looking at all the glamourous moms and dads, hippie parents, and just plain cool people. I submitted this photo below of my mom and dad. My mama looks sooo cute (love the hair!) and my dad is a handsome young man as well. I couldn't find an old picture of Josh's parents, but when I do I will post that as well.

Love you Mom and Dad!

With love, for V

A few days ago I attended my good friend Veronica's bachelorette party. In honor of the occasion I got her a lovely gift for her honeymoon and I made her this card.
I found the picture of the woman on the internet and I believe it's from the 1920's. She's so beautiful, like a classic painting. I wonder who she was. Maybe she had the picture taken of her as a wedding gift to her husband. I printed and cut the butterflies and the rose from this cool website that has free vintage clipart. I love the sweet, pretty images on this site and will be using many of them in my collages. P.S. I hope this lovely lady's nudity does not offend anyone. I personally find it completely inoffensive as she is depicted in such a romantic, non-pornographic way.
