Trying Vintage

So I love the vintage look. Maybe it is because of my love for old, antique-y things, my old house, my love for family and heritage, or maybe it is just the look. I know I have a long way to go but these are my first tries, with cards...












Supplies Patterned paper: Pink Paislee; Die cuts: K & Co; Metallic Flowers: Prima; Bingo Card: October Afternoon; Stamps: The Girl's Paperie; Ink: Stampin' Up; Letter stickers: Making Memories, Adornit by Carolee, Rose Moka; Punch: Martha Stewart; Ribbon: craft supply

Other news: Celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary on the 27th and we were able to get away for dinner, wine, and a hotel room to ourselves for the night. Very nice, relaxing and lovely to be together by ourselves. Don't get me wrong, being with the kids are nice, and I love them beyond reason, but mommy and daddy time is important, especially when the kids are getting so old and developing their own lives...in a few short years, we will be alone in this Ol' house and we need to still remember who we are as a couple.

We had a nice Easter too. Just the 4 of us. We made lasagna, green bean casserole and garlic cheese toast. MMMMMM...Banana cream pie for dessert. And help with dishes and dinner and no fights or arguements...think it was a winner of a day! We finished off the week with a nice, but short visit from DH's parents who were passing through and stayed the night! Lovely week so far! Love and hugs! Lara
