Tag Tuesday "VINTAGE" and a beautiful gift

I did warn you yesterday that you would be shown another tag today. It is Tag Tuesday after all. This week's theme is VINTAGE, and of course for me that meant lace. You know how much I love my vintage lace,lol.

I used a piece of very wide vintage French lace to cover the tag. It is one of my favourite pieces of lace, the colour is so delicious ( cafe au lait ) and it has such a beautiful, intricate pattern. I had some very fine scalloped fabric, which I attached to both edges of the tag. As the sweet little girl in the Edwardian image is wearing a green dress, I used green ric rac, green velvet leaves and a little bit of green bling as well. I added a few coffee stained vintage lace motifs and here is the finished tag -

You may just escape another tag post until next Tag Tuesday, lol, fingers crossed.


What do you think of when I say SUZIQU??? Beautiful fabric collages, wonderful rich and deep colours, the most precious fabric books, and above all the sweetest person. Right? This beautiful lady gifted me with the most beautiful cards for Christmas. Prepare yourself for a serious drool fest -





Aren't they absolutely fantastic? Even the inside of the cards have been embellished in typical Suziqu style. Big thank you hugs to you wonderful woman! I think I am going to frame them and hang them up so that I can admire them all the time.

Well, thats it once again. I totally forgot to make my inchie yesterday, so thats on the agenda for tomorrow, along with pics of some more lovely Etsy finds.

I love that you used green elements from her little dress. I too, love the cafe au lait lace-so vintage-y. You are the tag queen. I never tire of seeing them.
And your gifts from Suzy? They are so beautiful from such a sweet gal. So, so talented.
You are blessed!
