1950 VOGUE - A Vintage Journey Guest Designer

Howdy from Texas on a 100 degree summer day.

All our ranch hands, summer 'Warriors' (interns), and hubby are out working in this heat. Whew. 

I'm quite thankful to be inside playing with 1950's Vintage Vogue!  But the colors used are definitely reflective of the Texas heat. 

How delighted I am to be a guest on A Vintage Journey is not up for debate... I am totally happy. :)   

Tracy has the theme of monochromatic which is something I have always enjoyed doing. It's such a fun challenge. 

Here is a glimpse at my creation. 

Go to A Vintage Journey... there is actually a photo of MY incredible face - eheheheheh!!! Go see!!!  

That's all for today except to send my love to you all.
Thanks bunches and bunches for stopping by.
Leave me a message if you have a minute to spare.

Hope you will hop on over to A Vintage Journey and leave me some love there too !!!  I would sure appreciate it :)  XXj.

I fell in love with your gorgeous painting at A Vintage Journey, and it was so fun seeing your creative process and feeling like I was right there in the studio with you! And what a treat to see your beautiful photo! I hope it cools off for you soon; we are in the high nineties (99 ish) and heat index of 110! Yuck! We had lovely cooler weather on our trip to the WVA. mountains, but passed through lots of 100+ areas on the way home. Lots of love and hugs!

Oh sweet Joi, I apologize for my delayed visit and thank you so much for your kind comment today that brought me over again. I am drowning in responsibilities this way and that, so do keep me in your prayers. You are such a doll in your hat in the photo at AVJ! Such a cutie pie!!! And your canvas is marvelous and a perfect tribute. Big hugs, Autumn
