Merging what I'm doing here with my main blog

Just a short note to let you know that I am going to put what I was going to post here on my main blog

My original intention was to keep my other blog for miniatures and this for digital downloads but I realize I can post larger and miniature downloads so they work well for miniatures too.

I will leave the blog as it stands rather than delete it but I will not be adding more here.

See you at my original blog, thanks for looking.
Hugs, Jean

Joyeux Noel and Free Digital Download

Season's Greetings!! Here is a free digital download Joyeux Noel Oilette image that was sent from France in 1907. The oilette was produced by Rapheal Tuck & Sons. I loved this young boy enjoying their Christmas tree. All the best for a fabulous and healthy New Year. You have a choice of a lighter or darker image.

Vintage French Silk and Rayon narrow Ribbons

I've been adding groupings of some of my vintage French silk and rayon ribbons for sale on Etsy. To offer my customers variety, I am offering one yard of each of four colours. These measure 3/8 to 1/4" in width. The ribbons are great for so many crafts, scrapbooking, miniatures, doll and teddybear dressing, ribbon embroidery and many more. I will be adding more colours soon.

Hugs, Jean

Freebie Friday, French postcard. The Language of Ribbons, "The Star of Love"

This interesting postcard with the title " The Star of Love" is a French Postcard from 1914, very interesting as it mentions the meaning of the ribbon colours used on flowers. Here is the link for a high resolution to this image, you are welcome to the other images you find too.

Sharing Sunday, Flower Holders, Uses

My husband's mother whose maiden name was Genevieve Doucet was French Canadian and had a grandmother from France she would often talk about. Gen was a lovely lady who I really admired in so many ways. She loved her family, writing poetry and was in the garden, gardening almost every day of her life. She also loved flower arranging and the top right photo shows all of her flower holders. 

Flower holders are very handy for other things as well, scissor holders as shown on the bottom left, photo holders and I thought I would show also a miniature use in the middle photo. The top left postcard is in Etsy, I've always thought the lady was so lovely and looks like an energetic gardener.

Thought I would show some of my lovely French sewing postcards that I hope to have up in Etsy with my other sewing images and small vintage scissor collection. Love the Eiffel tower scissors.

Cheers, Jean
