A window for Lola....

Everyone knows how i love taking an old window and
putting vintage sheet music, or vintage ephemera of any
kind, adding some Paris post cards, or my favorite, birds
and nest cards.

I happened across some vintage sheet music with the

title "Lolita", so once i found that, i knew a "Lola"

window was in the works.

I think this little blondie happens to resemble my Lola,

and then i stamped her name and birth date in vintage

market stamps that i sell here at the shop.

Last but not least, added a vintage scrabble letter, and a pearl

letter, with some vintage papers. And of course, a green bird hook

to hang one of her lovely dresses from.

Lola's birthday is this Saturday, though we are celebrating it tomorrow evening with all of her new friends. I think this will make a lovely birthday present!

Hi,
I love your blog, and have been reading it for awhile now.
I just love your windows, and loved the French one you showed a while back.
I was wondering if you would custom one for me, and if so how would it ship?
Thanks!
Lisa Throng
(I guess I should probably just call your shop?)

Kasey-
Great window for Lola! I've been a big window fan for years and have a collection that are still waiting to be photographed. So much to do! You're very talented. Keep them coming!
