My Funny Valentine

My funny Valentine,
sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable ...

Vintage Valentines via pageofbats on flickr


Vintage Valentines cards and a song.  The song My Funny Valentine was written in 1937 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the musical Babes In Arms.  It has appeared on more than 1,300 albums recorded by more than 600 artists.  One such artist was Frank Sinatra and it appears in the 1957 movie Pal Joey starring Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak.  Though it is Kim Novak who sings My Funny Valentine, Frank who was billed between Rita Hayworth and Kim Novak said, "That's a sandwich I don't mind being stuck in the middle of."  Even though the song was not written about funny Valentines Day cards I just couldn't resist.

Beautiful Wedding, Gorgeous Bride and Precious Flower Girl

I'm back!  I had a very lovely much needed time off and it is lovely to be back.  

I am so pleased to share a gorgeous photo with you.  I had the pleasure of making a flower girl dress for the daughter of the bride.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to open an email from the bride with beautiful photo's!  This photo is just priceless!  It really took my breath away, mother and daughter are captured here in such a way the photo says it all.  The flower girl is wearing my silk design in an ivory bridal silk with adjustable sleeves.  The sleeve can be worn on the shoulder, slightly off the shoulder or completely loosened to be worn off the shoulder as seen in this lovely photo.

I am happy to share a special announcement!  After many many requests I am now designing women's dresses and wedding dresses.  I will begin to unveil my designs this spring.

Making Magazine

"Best dressed"

I was literally brought to tears in Barnes and Noble reading the lovely things they wrote and completely honored to be there. 

"Every girl should have a dress that makes her feel like a princess! 
Make room in the armoire for this gorgeous,
handmade little number from Vintage Precious Boutique. 
We don't even care that it won't fit us!!"

A special thank you to Tiffany of Tiffany Zettlemoyer Photography.   What a complete blessing it has been to work the most amazing and talented photographer.  Her visions have brought my dresses to life and each photo is truly a work of art.  I trust her completely and wait till you see her newest dress photo's!

With dreams come many plans. Though there have been many ups and downs since starting Vintage Precious, I am greatly encouraged with each blessing.
