Great table runner idea..

Am just ducking out from reading wonderful posts over
at 'Anzu' (you will love this blog), and felt I had to share
this great table runner idea that Ellen found via 'Brooklyn Bride'.

I love the idea of using old photos (read: scans and printouts of..)
as a unique and arty table runner like this. What a great treat to have
old memories scattered on a table like that - imagine the lovely
conversations the pictures will inspire! Would be great for a family
reunion, wedding anniversary or birthday party. Endless uses indeed!

Charlotta you are so sweet! Thank you for visiting 'A Casa da Vá' and leaving such a lovely comment that made me smile =) I am following your blog and hope to get to know more about you and your work

ps: I also LOVE old pictures as table runners! I adore sepia and black and white tones... I even have a vintage camera so I can take pics that look antique!

Hi gorgeous. You are so welcome. I think you are on a good path and was very inspired to read about your recent success.

Yes isn't this brilliant!?
I love black and white too and we take a lot of photos in our family. My husband is very talented - has even been published. You can see his work by clicking on the 'Photos by Marshall Ward' gadget in the left column.

Love that you have a vintage camera. How fabulous. You must share some of your photos on the blog!

Thank you for following - I am so glad to have you and hope you visit often!
