 I  am a painter, fine artist can paint in oils, pastels and watercolor, BUT give me Adobe photoshop and it is all Greek to me. Well friends, I made a breakthrough today after viewing a youtube Photoshop Elements Digital Scrapbook tutorial and actually learned how to make a digital scrapbook page. I had fun making our family pictures look antique thanks to Apple's wonderful i-photo editing program. Here is my family from last Easter.

Oh, I forgot to mention, our daughter Esther is now 10 1/2 and is almost as tall as me.

Who Made This I Love Vintage Blog Anyway

Let me introduce myself. I am a mother of a lovely 10 year old daughter and wife to an amazing talented architect. We adopted our daughter from China when she was 21 months old. Of course, I had to learn Mandarin so we could talk. Making sure my tones were correct so  I would say, You are such a good girl, rather than you are so strange.  Here is our little girl Estee Li Li. In Chinese her name is: 丽丽 which means beautiful. She is our spicy Hunan Girl. If you love vintage and just may be thinking of adopting babies from China. Please visit Adopt Chinese

I Love Vintage

I have always loved vintage, shabby chic and antiques as far back as I can remember. My dear mother beautifully decorated our home on Long Island, New York with fine antiques. Growing up as a teenager in the late '60s, I would buy vintage clothing; collect vintage hankies, shabby chic fabrics and bark cloth, and kitschy ceramics made in Japan.  Still 40 years later, I am still drawn to Vintage aprons, jewelry, antique books, collectible stickers and greeting cards from the 1910-1950s.
I made this website: I Love Vintage yesterday and found absolutely gorgeous vintage custom jewelry from England.

I dug a little deeper and found the cutest Vintage Aprons and rubber gloves

I have always loved Shabby Chic furnishings even before Rachel Ashwell made them trendy. Would you not just love these Shabby Chic, Vintage style lamps and chandeliers?
