Happy Spring!

My favorite time of year, isn't it yours too?


Especially in the South...after a cold winter and before the hot and humid summer.  A perfect time of year - that in between time when we do not need to turn on our furnace, nor our air conditioner and we can throw open the windows and let the breeze blow in!


The blooms are bursting everywhere.  Our garden is full of daffodils from butter cream to bright sunshine yellow, tiny white narcissus, snow drops, blush coloured Yoshino cherry blossoms, magnolia and tulip tree blooms, and the hibiscus and dogwoods are just ready to pop.

I captured these gorgeous cut stems of hot pink tulips, boldly placed against a pale dove grey wall.  Pure simplicity.


Some of these photographs may end up in my Society6, Zazzle, and Etsy shops.  I'm thinking that they would be fabulous as over-sized canvas or poster prints, don't you?


May you all enjoy this first weekend of Spring...even though some of you still may be in snow.


As always, thank you for your visit.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

Meet Alice's White Rabbit

Spring has sprung for this bun!


Meet Alice's White Rabbit.


This mischievous bun {who started out like this} got into a little mess, forgot about the time, never looked back...and look what happened to him - forever preserved!



Using layered vintage frames, beautiful creamy white matelassé wallpaper and tailored hounds tooth paper, vintage pearls and rhinestones, a bow tie, and a crown fit for a prince, this stuffed bunny who fell into some ink {with a little help} was never the same. 


I had to rescue him.  So I assembled the collection of artifacts as homage to Alice's White Rabbit.


These one of a kind mixed media rabbit taxidermy art pieces are made to order.  {I will also happily consider the preservation of other critters.}


 While this one is currently taking residence and hanging in the Design House in Macon, Georgia, it is for sale.  Contact me directly for details.  


Stay out of mischief and have a wonderful week.

As always, thank you for your visit.

Ciao amici,

Charmed

Vintage style.


A belated thank you to the creative talent behind the lovely publication, 
Creating Vintage Charm.




For the third time in as many issues, I have been fortunate to have my work shared on the pages of these journals.  Here's a peek...



A tutorial on how to create my vintage sheet music papier machè bowls and kissing balls...but if you do not want to make these yourself, they are available in my Etsy shop or by custom order.



And another tutorial on how to fashion your very own glamour girl letter openers.  The one of a kind pieces shown above have been sold, however I do accept special orders for these, as well.


The February issue was full of love and my HeART kits were featured.



Thank you Sonia Crouse, creator, editor, and friend, for the opportunity to share my work in your magazines.  It's always a joy to work with you!


Ciao amici,
Suzanne

PS

 I have enjoyed all of your comments and conversation throughout the years, however I feel that it is time for me to simply use this as a platform to share my work, photography, creations, and stories without the obligation for my readers to leave a comment.  Therefore, I have decided to disable comments on my blog {at least for now}.  If any of you would like to "talk" to me or share your thoughts, feel free to e-mail me at ItalianGirlinGeorgia{at}gmail{dot}com.  I will write back!

You all are fabulous and I have enjoyed getting to know you through our comments on each other's blogs. I hope that we will continue our cyber friendships through personal e-mails occasionally.

Ciao, ciao!
