Pretty photos ~ New Mouse Pad

A little while ago Natasha did a post with a great suggestion . . . take a pretty photo and have the image made into a new mouse pad. Looking at my scruffy DELL blue-grey mouse pad with the missing corner (UG) I thought I should follow-up with that idea myself, LOL.


Here are some images I am thinking of using. The pink and white dresses were made by my Nana in 1966 when I was a wee little thing. My Nana did the smocking on the white dress by hand. I wore the pearls on my Wedding Day and the small Cameo was given to me by my Aunt Brenda on my 16th Birthday. The lovely blue dress is a vintage gem too. Maybe I'll save it for my first Grand-daughter (not needed for a least 10 years! Just in case the "Careful what you wish for Gods" are listening).



Maybe I'll use the angled picture, which is just about the right angle for viewing (when I am using the keyboard to the left). I'll look into online options tonight. I am sure our local photo shop at the grocery store can make me one.

Oh I forgot Natasha did that with the mousepad. That's a great idea! I too like the angled picture, perfect for viewing. I just love those little dresses. What a treasure for you to keep for your own grandbabies....

Have a wonderful day,

ps. I have done the same thing with
daughters smocked dresses, put them away, for maybe a Granddaughter, one day.

Hi Karen...Love, love love it! The dresses are so adorable. My aunt used to smock everything. I love smocking on dresses.

Hugs, Nancy

Oh my goodness, your dresses are just BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the angled photo too, it would even be nice framed in a shabby white frame.
