Canvas: Forever Moments-“Vintage” Twins


Inspired by Jeanne Oliver in the “Letting Go” online class, I will be creating some pieces using a lot of vintage ephemera. In this case, I used a 6x6 canvas to put together some vintage pieces, including an old photo of my mother (recently passed) and her twin sister. They were born in 1928, so this studio picture was probably made in 1929.

The sheet music is from my own collection. The book text is from a vintage William Hawthorne work (the same book that I am using for my Blessings Journal—the one with the feather on the cover). The button (almost hidden beneath the bow) was from a group I purchased on our Vintage Findings Adventure recently (very old “new” buttons).
