Shells, frames and vintage

I have a couple of vintage shares together, both of them using frames.

I rediscovered a Penny Black stamp I had and just used the frame for the image. First I decorated it with shells (from a Hero Arts stamp) which I still had, cut out and waiting for use still from my holiday in Spain. I used to get up early every morning and wait until late before DH and the boys got up - so after my prayer time I started stamping butterflies and shells and cutting them out for later use. Now it is 7 months later and I am still using the shells.

These background papers are from the Graphic's Fairy. I colored in the little flowers with watercolor pencils.
Still nursing a sick David, he is very poorly this time round.


  1. Just dreamy and beautiful Jacqueline! I love your shell frame, exquisite! Keeping David in my thoughts and prayers! Big hugs to you!

  2. These are so retty Jacqueline. Hope David is better soon.

  3. Wow - so romantic and gorgeous! I love how you colored in the flowers on the second frame, and that image is adorable. All my best to David and to you, hoping he is better soon.

  4. I have been missing my daily inspiration from your blog, Jacqueline, but I just spent some time catching up with your posts. As usual I'm uplifted and encouraged from the time spent here. I'm praying for you and David, may he return to health very soon...blessings to you both!

  5. Your work is so beautiful. I will add David to my prayer chain list from church and keep him in my thoughts and prayers!!!!

  6. I am sorry to hear that David is still ill. All my best to David.

  7. wauw, wat mooi weer zeg! Vooral die tweede, zo'n leuk meisje met krulletjes was ik vroeger ook, haha, heb zulke foto's van mezelf, kan ik ook nog es proberen te verwerken in een kaart ;)
