Valentine tags 21 of them .......

Instead of seeing stars I am now officially seeing hearts .... I love hearts, who doesn't , but I feel like I have had an overload of sugar this last week :)) I have been creating 21 tags for a Valentine Tag swap.

My fav tag is the one in the middle below, it was the penultimate tag and a great feeling of euphoria swept over me as I raced for the finish line.

Some close-ups of a few more.

The tags will be heading off to Heather of Speckled Egg who will share them out amoung 2o other keen tag swappers. Then Heather will be creating 21 little tag books and sending on off to each of us. Sharing other peoples creative work is the best part of all.

Hi Ginny, thank your for visiting my blog. Yes my book on Queen Mary is quite fascinating. The book starts from when she was born, so you get to see a lot of the very old Royals from Queen Victoria's time. It also includes alot of quite famous people from her life e.g. writers, actors, politians etc.
I think the last time I came to England in 1982 there was an exhibition of some of the Royal Wedding Dresses at the National Portrait Gallery. If I remember rightly they started with Queen Victorias. Not sure if Diana's was there though. By the way her wedding dress and a lot of her cloths are currently in Sydney at one of our Museums. My sister went and saw them and was quite fascinated by the detail in all of her clothes. Another "old" royal I always found quite interesting was Queen Alexandria. There are a few photos of her in my book and she was very beautiful. In one photo she looks younger than her daughters.
Have you ever seen QM's Doll House. Its quite amazing and is at Windsor Castle. = Thank you for reminding me of the beautiful dresses = Sandra.

CAMILLA said...

Hello Ginny,

I have been introduced to your site by a very good friend of mine in Scotland. Thank you for allowing me to visit Twinkle Pink.

I was absolutely swept away by such beautiful things, everything so breathtaking, and delicious.

I have a passion for Vintage and adore the colour Pink. Your Fairies are gorgeous, thank you so much for brightening my day, along with the beautiful tune the Fairy Dance.

Camilla.

Hi Ginny,
Thought I'd come by and take a look! I found you through sweet Lidy. I love your tags. Also, the bit about ladies hair (Marie Antoinette) was interesting, flour and lard? No wonder those little mice loved it, I think I'll stick to my hair spritz!

Happy Day!

Carolr said...

Ginny, I received our tags from Heather yesterday. Aren't they lovely? Yours was so special that I had to write you. I got the one with the pink heart on the right side, almost at the bottom. I love looking at this site at ALL of your tags, so different each one, and so delightfully delicious, I would have been happy to have a ring of all yours.

Anita said...

Wow Ginny, you lucky girl! Not only the tags made by you look gorgeous, you will get a whole book full of different tags! That sound wonderful! I envy you! ;-)))

By the way, I made a couple of new nostalgic looking hearts lately (photos will soon be on my blog). I'd love to do a little swap with you! (I just about to send a swap parcel off to Carol at Boxwood cottage). Drop me a line if you are interested in swapping with me again! I still admire the wondeful heart you created for our nostalgic heart swap last spring, I take a look at it several times a day, it's hanging in my little creative space!

Have a great Sunday!

Best wishes, Anita
