My Etsy Avatar

This picture reminds me of my great love of vintage clothes, the romance of times past...the innocence of a time I will never know...the femininity of womaness...the power of inner beauty and the appreciation of being admired by someone other than ones self. (note the man on the right hand side of the page looking at the photographer) I am sure he wasn't watching the photographer the whole time.

It reminds me of how important details are. Look at the ornate designs of the door, mirror and crown moulding...that of course causes me to think about the ornate detail God has put into each one of us. It is this detail, that makes us so beautifully individual.

Just think of my pleasant surprise one day last spring, when I came home from college to see this beautiful picture on my desktop. Chelsea had found it in her great wanderings online. The Thankfully she had saved it before changing the desktop picture again.

After I joined Etsy, I went searching for a picture that I felt described part of who I am for my avatar. I found this in the saved pics. It was perfect!

Thanks Chelsea! You made my heart smile, one more time!

I love this too, all the detail in the wall and her dress... I love the way the light makes the folds of her gown looks like layers and layers of softness. I can feel its delicate fabric and smell her heady perfume! Thanks, HH!

I think her perfume would smell just like your tuberose and moss soap....sigh...

I love this avatar. I've studied Fashion as well as Interior Design and this era is my favorite for both. It was so proper and innocent it mesmerizes me. I just love the way things were back then, the architecture the, interiors, the fashion styles and their ettiquette-- where did it all go!
Hugs, Dee
