A Valentine’s Collage

It seems to become a tradition for me to create a fabric collage for my Valentine’s decoration.  Two years ago I already loved whites and neutrals but still had my fondness for pink as well. Therefore the collage I had created back then was REALLY pink.  The one I made last year was mostly cream and beige with a little touch of pink.

This year I opted for neutral colors only because my love for pink had faded away quite a bit, at least when it comes to decorating. In my closet are still lots of pinks and they will stay :-).

You probably won’t be surprised that the lovely image had been provided by THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. Thank you again, Karen!

I’ve been busy making some more Valentine’s creations and will show them to you next week. How is your Valentine’s decoration coming along?

Have a wonderful weekend!

HUGS,

Hallo meine liebe Julia,

Wow da hast Du mal wieder ein Träumchen gezaubert. Ich kann nur staunen und schwärmen und schwelgen. Gefällt mir wahnsinnig gut.

Ich wünsche Dir ein wunderschönes WE meine Liebe *winke*

Dear Sweet Julia
What a delightfully gorgeous collage!
I love your chosen image with your Poems of Love in black and the laces look so striking against the black background especially the lace at the bottom.
Looking forward to seeing the rest of your Valentine's cards and hoping that you have a really lovely weekend with not too much snow as we enjoy these balmy days.
Sending thoughts of love and many big hugs,
Suzy

Hallo liebe Julia, da hast Du wieder einmal eine göttliche Collage gemacht! Ich bin hin und weg....einfach wunder-wunderschön sieht das aus.
Tja, die Farbvorlieben ändern sich eben im Laufe der Zeit und ab und zu muss frau doch einfach umdekorieren, oder?
Wünsche Dir ein schönes (frostiges) Wochenende meine Liebe.
Herzliche Grüße
MARTINA

Hi Julia,
This little collage is so very pretty, I love the delicate feel you've given it, The lace has given the motif a filligree effect, so lovely.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Warm hugs, Angela.

Ooooo Julia I love your newest collage! I love the neutrals and all the pretty touches you have added. And I love 'come live with me and be my love' that is one of my favorite lines of love :)
My decorating has been a little slow. I am making collaged hearts for each of my children and my mother and a couple of friends, and if I don't light a fire under myself they will be ready next Valentine's Day.
sending much love...

You know I always love everything you make even if it was REALLY pink:0 I have stash of fabrics in colors I will never use. I quickly put them away this fall but I need to re-evaluate and have to purge.
Early Happy Valentines to you my friend.

hugs
Carole

Die Monogramme hab´ ich schon eine Weile, machen sich toll als Deko.

Dearest Julia,

Liebstige Julia,
~~♥~~
ich weiß mal wieder nicht, was ich schöner finden soll: dein "couch caddy" vom letzten Posting (wie heißt so etwas eigentlich auf Deutsch?) oder deine Valentinstags-Creation: Beides hat den wunderbaren Julia-Touch, zart und fein und besonders!
Dank dir auch für deinen lieben Kommentar "aus dem frostigen Norden"! :o) Hat's bei euch auch so viel geschneit wie bei uns von letzter Nacht an??? (Sieht wunderschön aus, verursacht aber natürlich mal wieder Verkehrschaos...) Kamin und/oder Kachelofen aus Großarl kämen mir jetzt jedenfalls gerade Recht! Du hast natürlich richtig getippt mit deiner Vermutung: Passend zum Bezugsstoff gab es im Hotel "Wild aus eigener Jagd" - wirklich köstlich zubereitet, wie übrigens ALLES dort! (Sehnsuchtsseufz!!!) Aber für die Figur wäre es auf Dauer fatal, dort zu bleiben ;o) Und die Katzen freuen sich klarerweise, dass wir wieder da sind :o)
~~♥~~Alles Liebe und ~~♥~~herzliche-herzhafte~~♥~~ Rostrosen-Küschelbüschel an dich und sämtliche sonst noch anwesende Julias sowie das Cecilkaterchen
von der Traude~~♥~~

Cudowne są te koronkowe serca... :) Pozdrawiam!

Deine Collage ist einfach wunderschön, Julchen! Hihi, und ich kann mir jetzt auch direkt die anderen neuen Creationen angucken! :o)
