Vintage Gal II

I know, I'm a little obsessed with photographing my girls lately. But I'm having fun editing them to look like antique photographs.

The gorgeous ribbon is some that I purchased from Jeanne Oliver's collection a couple of years ago. It's vintage French velvet ribbon and so yummy.
The glass glitter crown I've had for a while, I got it from Shabby Chic about 7 years ago.

How about you... What's your favorite things to collect and photograph? I would love to know!!
Hope you have a lovely night.


  1. oh Melinda, these photos are AMAZING
    totally want to frame them!!!
    You need to sell these.
    I would so buy them.
    Well for a few years I took an I-zone photo everyday of my random life in my 20's and made a book out of them. it was seriously my favorite time to photograph things.

  2. These lovely ladies are always a favorite of mine, but haven't seen any in a while...well at least that I could afford:-)

    Hope all is well,

  3. Looks nice Melinda...and I especially like the velvet ribbon, and the crown and the pin. I like it all and I have one lovely lady myself :) Sending love your way..... Rita

  4. The vintage postcard look is absolutely fab, just love it. The audition of ribbon and crown and bit of bling is perfect. I need to dress up my girl Collette in such finery! . These would make such lovely cards.

  5. Hi!!! Really neat effect! I just loooove your photo #2 down! I know what you mean... sometimes I like to buy things with that thought in mind that I know it will be very photogenic!! ;) I guess right now my favorite things to collect would probably be ceramic things, like Anthropology mugs and stuff like that and I also like pretty baking papers, too. I love it all really lol...

    The velvet ribbon is so pretty! Love that pale blue shade!
    Lara :)

  6. Seriously, your talent for styling is AMAZING Melinda! I adore this mannequin so much I want to hug her (and you)! I don't have Pinterest, but these photos are going in my style files. That velvet ribbon and that crown...be still my heart!
    Take care my friend,
