Love, Flowers and Romantic Artwork

Do all couple have a thing they say to each other? You know, a little phrase that has become part of your regular conversation. For Eric and I it's, Love You More. One of us usually ends up saying it when we end a phone conversation. The funny thing is, my kids have now taken it up, too. So I hear it often. Guess that's why I created this sign.
I had originally designed and printed this image for an 8x10 frame. It's part of the Vintage Valentine Vignette I have in my home right now. But I loved it so much that I decided to print it larger and put it in an old window as Valentine art to add to our booth at Caledonia Vintage Marketplace. I used banner material to print it on because it has a nice texture that paper doesn't have. It also holds up well to the staples I attach it to the frame with.

The picture itself is a stock photo that was purchased as part of a bundle for work. I changed the hue of it by giving it a slight sepia tone, though it's hard to tell from these photos. And I softened it a little with some filters in Photoshop.
It's such a pretty photo.

The window I was going to use was not at all chippy. I got out my paint scraper and scraped away until I got the look I desired.

I cleaned the white paint off the hardware as best I could. I think it looks fantastic now!

I grouped this pretty picture here with some of my favorite glass bottles...

and the old slide holders that happened to be in a case I purchased at an auction.
I so love these!

I'm hoping this pretty picture will go home with a wonderful family.
