Just the coolest.. (updated)


did anyone else know that you can make your own laptop skins??? Carrie of My Fairytale Moment used this Moth image to create a fabulous skin for her laptop! How cool is that??

UPDATE:
***For those of you who asked, 'skins' are vinyl decals or images that adhere to the exterior of your laptop allowing for you to individualize your machine. Here is a link for more info.. DecalGirl.com***

And the winer is....

Jen of Jemjoop! No beating around the bush with this one. I used a random number generator, those things are so much fun to play with, and it picked #65. After trying to scroll through and keep count, I landed on Jen. Thank you everyone for playing along, the comments were great and it's nice to see the faces behind all of you who visit. But.. everyone wins here at The Moth! :)
I might have posted these before, but alas I can't remember..

Un petit morceau de ciel fran├žais !


Bonjour!
I am playing along with my friend Rhonda and her extreme love of all things French. If you would like to grab some images of France/Paris please stop by my blog. You can also feel free to play along and share what you love about France by visiting Rhonda's blog!

Merci! Thank you for all of the wonderful Birthday wishes! It was a lovely day; I spent all of my Birthday money at HomeGoods on Easter decorations. I just love their tall, foil cover bunnies! (I see a post coming about those...)
I will announce the winners to my giveaway on Monday!

xoxo~

Woohoo! 500 Followers!

I have been trying to get to your emails. I have been inundated with quite a few lately and haven't had much opportunity to respond to them all. I will though, just need a wee bit more time. :) The Moth just hit 500 followers and I think that is soooo awesome! It's great to know that so many love what I post.

These are some of my favorite! Aren't they just so fun and whimsical?




Tomorrow is my birthday (34.. wow!) so I probably won't post again until Monday. Have a lovely weekend Dear Blogger Friends!

Apologies..







My apologies at being gone for so long between posts. I am finding it difficult to run three blogs and keep all things running smoothly. Don't worry though, the Vintage Moth isn't going anywhere, just bear with me while life happens.

100th Post!! GIVEAWAY!!



I'm sorry that I have been gone for so long. I have been trying to decide what I want to do for The Vintage Moth's 100th Post! A very big deal here in Bloglandia and not to be taken lightly! :)

Sooo.... in traditional blog style I have decided to have a giveaway just for those who stop by. I will be passing along some antique papers, pages or this and that. The real ones!

Here is the nitty gritty:

1.)this contest is only for those who happen to visit. Please don't spread the word. Besides, the fewer who enter the more likely you are to win! ;)

2.)This giveaway is open to anyone, from anywhere in the world. I get the biggest kick out seeing where people come from so the further away the better!

3.)Leave a comment on this post let me know what type of images are your favorite.

4.)You can enter only once, up until February 20th. (My birthday.. it's always better to give than receive!)

5.)That's it!

Now.. on to the prize..




The originals of the above pages, some original antique ledger pages and whatever I find in my collection that suites the person who wins! You'll love it!
Oh, you're looking for the days free images aren't you? Here those are...

A few highlights...

Juno used a ribbon image she found on The Vintage Moth and created a fabulous .png image. You can see the orginal ribbon image here. Thank you Juno, lovely work!

I will try to post some .png images, as I know they are great for layering if enough people would like them.. any takers? Just leave a comment and let me know what you think. For those who are unaware, .png image format allows me to remove the white background, making what appears white on the screen to actually be translucent. When you apply them to your digital work, only the image appears, not the white box around it.




Also, Kathy Caloway, of Caloway Creations, used one of the Rooster Images and Yearly Egg Count Register to create the wonderful piece above. I love it!!


I am trying my best to get to emails but time is not on my side. I'm thinking about starting a Flickr group for you to be able to post your creations. I'd LOVE to see what everyone is doing with the images from here. Oooo! How about a monthly challenge?? Let me know!

Also, the February challenge for Mind Wide Open was just posted! Come and play!

Ok, images you can use... these are some that I picked up from the fantastic (and 'oh so lucky')Rhonda. (check her blog to see what I mean.. it's 'killer!') You can visit her Etsy shop and find some marvelous, authentic antique and vintage ephemera. she has such a passion for mixed media work and HER SHOP is filled full with great things!




I think that covers it! Oh! I also added a Guestbook to the very bottom of the page! Please sign it!
