Vintage baby

The crisp air of fall is finally making its presence known in Georgia in the early morning hours.
The changing seasons always inspire me to fluff my nest for the beauty each season brings.

Time to change the cloche contents!  I LOVE vintage baby pictures.  I especially love this picture because of the water stains {yes, authentic distressing - still love my Tim Holtz distress ink pads though!}, the crisp picture and delicate details of the child's jewelry and lace.

This fall is all about soft colors of white, brown and tan for me.
{thinking of making a white pumpkin run to Hobby Lobby!}

I have a silver locket that was given to me as a gift a very long time ago.  I have never polished it - only dusting.  I love the aged patina it has.  {I guess a few wrinkles could be an aged patina too but let's not talk about that, lol!}
I thought the locket would be a sweet nod to the necklace around the baby's neck.

Birdie?  . . . because I love me some birdies!

Sweet little prairie baby!  I wish I had some worn cowboy booties to clip this one to.  Maybe with a little rhinestone blingy.

A little Victorian lass which much have had some pretty blue or green eyes.
She has a funny look on her face which reminds me of her parents asking her to sit still just so the photo could be shot.  {some things never change}

Wishing for you a very inspired fall!

I think my last comment was lost...

So very excited to see you are one talented lady! I LOVE this post, the only problem is it makes me want to run and hide and craft the weekend away for fall ;) Hoping all is well with you! Thank you for sharing such beauty with all of us in blogland!

Love you girl,
