Every Inchie Monday Challenge - DREAMS

DREAMS, hah, that should be easy, I thought. It is nothing abstract or complicated. Yeah right. Once I tried to project all the ideas I had on to a one inch square, things didn't look quite so easy anymore. In the end I decided to use part of one of my most precious French postcards, a very sweet little girl fast asleep on a pile of cushions, and have her dreaming of Christmas.

Of course then there was also the usual dilemma of which background to use, lol, so once again, I photographed the inchie on three different backgrounds. You have got all three here, because again as usual, I can't decide which one I prefer.

I'll have to make this post short and sweet, as I want to list some more French treasures on my Vintageland blog in a little while. Here are some of the little treasures -

A fine quality rosary from Lourdes

So hard to find these days, vintage parcel carry handles-

Some precious French religious medals, including this beautiful blue glass one-

as well as this sweet cherub one-

and an absolutely gorgeous French fabric covered chocolate box-
I should be making a tag today, but alas, the Tag Tuesday challenge is no more, the lovely Rebecca who had set us the weekly challenges had to stop due to health reasons. I need another Tuesday challenge! Any suggestions?

Right, I had better get on with things, toodlepip xxx
