My Easter Banner - Free Download!

I had so much fun putting together an Easter banner; I made it almost exclusively from vintage Easter greeting cards I found in a thrift store grab bag. The other day I put together the panels of the banner... and then I didn't do anything else with it, because I have had a cold and when I get home from work I just have to rest -- no time for creating, darn it! But today I took a day off and stayed home sick.  Doing so *really* hurts when you are a temporary employee and have no sick time, but sometimes you just have to take care of YOU. After resting all morning, I got up the energy to finish the banner!  Didn't it turn out so sweet? I had posted a couple of photos of the pieces on Facebook when I started it, and a lot of my creative friends asked to see it finished.  So I decided to scan each panel and post them here.  That way, you can have a banner of your own: just right click on the photo to open it to full size, save it to your computer, and print each

Vera Neumann in Spring

Continuing my love affair with Vera Neumann ...I can never leave a thrift store or estate sale without checking through the scarves for a vintage Vera.  Sometimes I can spot one from across the room!  Here are my newest textile treasures: Cobalt blue and brown swirls... with the iconic ladybug signature funky floral  from the same era I love it when I find one like this that I already have; that way, I can sell it and still keep one to wear and enjoy! A mod, abstract Vera I've never seen before!  It almost looks like a stylized bunch of grapes. Spring is playing hide and seek with us here in Colorado -- as usual.  How about in your neck of the woods?
