The true harvest of life is is in the tints of the morning and is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

These are the projects that I taught at my class at Scrapawhile this week. I've used the beautiful Butterfly Garden paper for both of the projects, there are quite a few different sheets, all of which are equally lovely. The girls loved these projects, especially the Tag booklet.

Rob, is it too cheeky of me to ask if there's a template in the public domain (or purchasable) for the second project you show -- the fold up, tie string piece? I sure would love to create some pieces using my scans with that pattern:) I love both projects -- especially the colors in your tag book!

Completely gorgeous work!

Thank you very much for all of your recent comments over at Chronically Vintage. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits.

To answer your lovely question about what got me interested in vintage (images - and all things old school in general), the honest to goodness answer is that I've loved (and been healthily obsessed ;D) with the past for as long as I can remember.

When I was a little girl (about six) I begged my mom to sew me a poodle skirt (I was already passionate about the 50s), which I then proceeded to wear the moment I got home from school everyday for a good two or three years.

This is just one cute example of the fact that for as long as I have memories stretching back to, I can remember being wildly fascinated with history, those who came before me, the way society used to be (compared to its present state), and the fashions and trends that comprised different eras.

As I grew up I never lost my childhood love of the past, instead I parlayed it into being a vintage lover (one who wears vintage clothing, collects vintage items, researches history, cooks vintage recipes, etc), as well as my family's genealogist.

To me the past is not some sort of murky, distant world, I feel a kinship with it and am elated by the fact that I'm able to share that bond with, and love of, the years that came before me with others through Chronically Vintage.

Heartfelt thanks again for your question, kind soul.

Many hugs & joyful Sunday wishes,
