A Vignette

I am redoing this for Donna @ Funky Junk's Vignette Party


Come on and join the fun!

For my first vignette (or vinaigrette as my son says) I used....



an old pic of me and my little sister taken many moons ago....



a cutesy vandle holder that at the time I just HAD to have!....



some old bibles. The bottom 2 were my husband's grandparents. The missal was given to my dad by his parents when he went into the Air Force. He gave it to me when I left for the Army....



my Mrs Southeast Michigan 2005 crown cause what do you do with a crown like this? Wear it to clean house? Ok, I do do that sometimes....

That is my orchid that when I got was so beautiful but now I have not been able to get it to bloom. I haven't killed it yet though so that is a bonus!

Add it all up....



and you have my very first vignette! I am so hooked on these now!

Hopefully, I will also get a couple more done today that I have in mind.

This was your first?!? You go girl! That photo and frame really sets off the tone! It's gorgeous! You sure have me curious about that crown (as I glance over at Lucy's pic) LOL!

Heehee about the orchid! I was waiting for something special from you. :)

Thanks for linking up to the party!

Cute picture of you and your sister. I'd definitly wear the crown all. the. time!!

Can we see a picture of you when you won your crown, Maggie ? I've had so many orchids that have never flowered again but, take heart, my sister has made many of her's flower. You do so many things, Maggie....I am in awe. XXXX

Great job! My daughter wears her tiara when she cleans house too. She says it makes it fun! :-)

Blessings,

Love it, especially the photo with frame and the tiara. That must be a real conversation piece. I have a picture of my younger sister and I at 4 and 5 as flowergirls for our oldest sister's wedding. I may have to get it out and use it. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the inspiration.

Wny not wear the crown while cleaning house- heck you should wear it while grocery shopping or to a teacher conference :)
I love the picture of you and your sister- how adorable. It all looks great.

This is your first vignette? Wow, you rock! You've got talent, but then that crown pretty much confirms that fact!
I discovered you via the vignette party, so nice to meet you!
All the best,
