Blog Backgrounds and my Mom

Nothing new today so I thought I'd tell you why I chose my particular blog background design.

My favorite backgrounds and headers are from Vintage Made For You---and, even better, they are free.  My current one, which I can't bring myself to change, is called A Long Time Ago.  You can find it HERE.  I chose a different header from her collection.  I like the clock since I'm 2amscrapper.

I have a queen theme going here so I like that the image is wearing a crown.  However, the woman featured reminds me of my mother.

Here is a tag I previously made using my mother's photo.  Don't you see the similarity? I think it's rather uncanny.  They even have the same hair-do. 


Perhaps this explains why I like vintage so much!   Being raised with old photographs and crochet handiwork, just makes me gravitate to old images and vintage paper crafting.

This month my mother would have been 103 years old.  She always celebrated two birthdays, the real one and the one the midwife wrote on her birth certificate at the courthouse. 

If you would like details about the products used to make this tag, my original tag post is HERE.  I used Rogue Redhead Designs background stamps and a beautiful crocheted item from a blogging friend.

Maybe now that I've shared with everyone, I can bring myself to post a new blog background.
