Thank you, Rhondadesigns. I had fun carefully leafing through dozens of antique magazines to find all these images. (I photograph the pages with no flash, and do not harm the originals in any way.) There is such a wealth of fabulous imagery from this era when magazines were mostly illustrated with engravings, mezzotints and lithographs.

Thanks, rhondadesigns! I'm so glad you like the romantic rose colours! They printed up very nicely (although the swatch photo is not a very good one).

There is a wonderfully romantic rose-coloured glow to your design. It makes a great companion to your other vintage designs.
