long ago, a very dear soul sent me an amazing package in the mail, filled to the brim with vintage papers, photos, and travel mementos that once belonged to her family.
it was one of the most amazing packages i've ever opened! i could just feel the history and love brimming from each saved memory.
i knew i wanted to do something special with these items, but unsure of exactly what - so i tucked them away for safe keeping until the right moment. i recently discovered these treasures again.
beneath the drips and drops of paint are many lovely memories of days gone by-mostly of travels to europe.
it really gives this piece a whole new meaning, like it has already lived in another lifetime.
(oh, and the flowers in her hair? from a vintage american greeting card - written to 'mom' on mother's day! love.)
happy tuesday, friends!
