Powerful Images.......

 

 
I'd like to share with you the lovely, lovely swap I did with this talented lady.....
 
 
 
The wonderful Zoe Power!
 

 
She sent me the most AMAZING postcards, made from her beautiful images!
 

 
I absolutely love her quirky photography, she really knows how to put that extra spin on vintage......she's also used some of my wallpaper collection for some of her backdrops!
 

 
She made me this cute little calendar, which I'm going to put up in my little Crafty Space...
 
 
I think her work is dreamy and romantic! She also sells her images on Etsy.
The quality of her work is excellent!
 
If you get a chance have a little peak. Thank you so much Zoe! There was a lot more than these, I'm sure I will use lots of the images in future posts!
 
What a lovely few days we've had here in the UK, Mother Nature is teasing us, making us believe that Spring is almost here!
 
I'm going to have a little Bloggy break, just for a few days. The girls have friends over tomorrow and we've planned some Vintage Crafting. Get them started early, that's what I say!
 
Welcome to those of you new to my little blog, thank you so much for leaving me some of your thoughts! Hope you all have a lovely week!

Etsy stuff.....
 
I gave up trying to flatten my wallpaper pieces.....life's too short! I'm afraid the photos aren't great so I will have another go at photographing them next week. There are 32 pieces of wallpaper, most of my collection. They cost £16.00 and are great for crafty projects!
 
 
 
 
 
I've also added some more wallpaper....
 
 
 
 
There was so much orange in the 70's!!!!
 
I will be popping some more fabric bundles on too, in the near future and I do have some pottery bits and bobs.....when I can brave the cupboard they're in!!! :) x
 
(oh and I'm feeling another little give away coming.......)

  1. Love those photos! And your wallpaper stash is so pretty. I found two unopened huge rolls of seventies wall paper at opshop recently but have no idea what to do with it. Anyway, have a good day!

    1. Wooden boxes, printers trays look good. Magazine files, you could cover books....you could patchwork your wall, anything with a good firm surface. Use a good glue, PVA watered down a bit is good, you may need to seal it afterward, have fun! :) x

  22. Hello lovely Ada! Thank you so, so much for this very lovely post - I feel very honoured. I'm sorry to be so late in commenting - it's been a hectic week and I'm just catching up on my blogs now. But how lovely to see all the very kind comments too. I'm so glad you like the images.
    I love your pics of all the different wallpapers - I think they look great rolled up like that. I adore all the prints. I think I will be back for some more big pieces for backdrops too - they're just too delicious to pass by :) Thanks again and have a lovely weekend!
