Paintings By: ~Vintage Nina~

When I started this painting I was thinking of a painting I had in my bathroom when I was a little girl. I LOVED that painting, and this Angel inspired me. I LOVE her innocence and the sweet angelic look in her eyes! 

 I always seem to try to work in some kind of Bling, and Metal in my art. I LOVE this Vintage Broach.

I wish I could truly capture her eyes and lips. She looks so Fierce with her eyes.
This is the finish of my "Box Canvas".
I LOVE the texture in all my paintings. The more texture the better as far as I am concerned!!!


I hope you enjoy!

A Feather, Heart Rock and Painting by: ~Vintage Nina~

I was outside with my doggies this morning and look what I found! A heart shaped rock and a feather. I am staying strong during my health challenge, but I always LOVE a sign from above that I am on track and I WILL BE JUST FINE!!! That was the message I needed today. Then I came in and read my daily message from my "The Secret" teachings......I thought "Thank You Universe"!!!

This is a painting I just finished. I LOVE her eyes, I get LOST inside them. My hubby says she looks like an actress, but he can't think of her name. I hate it whan I do that...LOL!!!

Canvases that cost NOTHING by ~Vintage Nina~

Can you guess what this canvas is??? It cost me nothing and I am helping the Universe by recycling......I LOVE recycling!!!

 This is with gesso on the "MYSTERY CANVAS" and
a face I sketched out.
 I LOVE a thick side on a canvas, and this one has it!!! So did you guess what the canvas is made of???
IT is boxes, any kind of box. I just did the front of the "Sweet N Low" box with brown bag paper so you could see the effect below. 

I am LOVING this new idea of mine, and when I am all done I will show you what I am doing with all of my paintings! Save a box, and give it a is SO MUCH FUN!!!

Handmade Journal's By: ~Vintage Nina~

Journals have been such a huge part of my life. As young as I can remember I have LOVED to journal. Now at 43 years old journaling is SO IMPORTANT to me!!! Through my journey and all the lessons I have learned, this journal I made was "SO NINA".

Keys to the soul!
Inspire everyone to be their TRUE SELF!
Create Beauty in the world!
Wish for Good things to happen!
Look within!Be thankful!

"Life is not a destination but a journey"

I LOVED making this Miracle Journal, and I have had many miracles in my life (I had an AMAZING MIRACLE with my health in just the past few weeks......"Thank You God & Universe"), and sometimes I need another miracle!!!
I am VERY THANKFUL for all of the miracles in my life!!!

Take time to journal all that you are thankful for, and see just how truly blessed you are!!!

Freebie Fun from ~Vintage Nina~

I had so much fun making these tags. I am going to add them to some apple butter jars I made. I also will be using these on other pretties too. If you like any of the below creations by: ~Vintage Nina~  please download and ENJOY!!!

This one is so special to me. I will use this one for a note to my hubby........I LOVE MY HUBBY SO MUCH!!!

PLEASE~ Enjoy Life!!! I can think of so many things I am doing with this image!!!

 Beautiful Girl........does she not look like she is dreaming of her future??? I think I will make some cards with her!
 This one makes me think of my special friends and sisters, so I will be making some cards for them with this image. I had so much fun making all of these images:).
I know the above image might be hard to read, so I thought I would share the message:

You are OK. Everything is as it should be. The energy of the world ebbs and flows and luck, happenstance, and obstacles are truly a part of everyone’s life. How you respond to things says a lot about your inner state of being. The ups and downs are never “over” as much as they are accepted, responded to, lived with, transformed—and then life begins anew.
Know and believe this: Energy replenishes, it’s flow is constant. You can rejuvenate. You can feel fresh, alive, vibrant, free. You are whole today. You are missing nothing.
Free yourself of the burdens of the past and step into a new way of being. Intend a transformation. You can feel like you are back to yourself and yet more of the beautiful person that you are.

I hope you enjoy my fun creations......please use or share any you like!!!
HAPPY DAY!!! ~Nina

For the LOVE of a Rosary!!!

 Let me start out by saying I am not a Catholic, but I do LOVE Rosaries, Saints, Candles and so much more that the Religion has to offer. I am so BLESSED and I have the most BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING life and family!!! Here is my first attempt at making Rosaries. While I was making these Rosaries I was only thinking of Love, Peace, Hope, Health, Laughter, Strength, Happiness and so much more. I wanted only Positive energy in each one!

My Beautiful Kristin loved this one, so I had to give it to her. I LOVE MY GIRLS!!!

I love the turquoise cross, and the old world feel. The coral rose beads are from a Vintage necklace, they are so unique and beautiful!!! 

Isabella had to have this Rosary. She loved the purple and the silver glass beads. She is my "bling bling girl". She hangs her Rosaries on her bed post behind her bed. SO CUTE!!!

This is a Saint bracelet I made. My Niece Samantha went to Italy last summer and brought some Saint charms back for me. LOVE THEM!!!
My SWEET Isabella got her cast off...........WHOO HOO!!!! We are enjoying our summer!!! I LOVE MY KIDDIES!!!! HAPPY DAY!!!~Nina
