TAW.. Vintage Beauty..

My favourite subject....Vintage beauty..so I had to make at least
a couple for this weeks Take a Word challenge.
We all remember I'm sure the adverts for Pears soap. 
This pretty vintage image was in sepia. I made her black
and white and coloured her softly with my mouse.
The pretty borders are by Florju.
I had to use this young lady when I found her. I was
fascinated by her hair-do and I don't thinkl she was very old.
The background and other elements from my vast stash.
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.
Have a very happy Monday.
Love and Hugs

Both collages are beautiful. It's hard to imagine that little girls were ever that sweet. There seem to be a lot of spoiled, bratty ones around nowadays.

That certainly IS an interesting hair-do! Both of the girls are lovely, and you've done them justice, June.
