Fur baby!

 





Hi lovelies, hope you are well! Today I wanted to share some photos of my Fur baby! Having her in my life really helps as I suffer from anxiety and PTSD. We adopted her two years ago and it was one of the best things that I have ever done in my life! It was her Sixth Birthday in April, I planned on doing a photo shoot for the day, but somehow it didn't plan out the way I imagined.... oh well, there are other Birthdays! 

She is such a blessing and every day she brings us so much joy and love!


















Thanks for stopping by the Den! See you on the next post.

Vintage stamps.... oh my!





Hello lovelies, hope you are well! It's such a dark, rainy day here in the UK where I live... a perfect time to create!  


I have such a love for really old, vintage and antique rubber stamps and have started to collect them! Here are some photos of my little collection. I am always on the lookout for more and it's quite exciting as I always come across other vintage items to salvage and give a good, loving home to! 











This particular one is a French antique and from the early 1900's.... heaven! 
I have also created some little vintage inspired Matchbooks, which I decorated with a paper collage of vintage book pages and postal stamps that I designed myself. 
I have also added wax seals and bakers twine as a  closure. 






For the inside of the matchbooks, I have added a small stack of printer paper with quotes. 





I have also decorated the back of the matchbooks' with vintage papers and ephemera. 


Thanks so much for stopping by the Den! I really appreciate your visit.
