Vintage Crucifix and Frame...I'm still here!

Hello,old friends. I hope we can just pick up where we left off.  I've missed you terribly, and I am really looking forward to catching up with you.  All is well.  My absence has really just been due to a very busy life as a mom, wife, business owner and cheerleader for my kids' sports teams.  We go at it seven days a week right now.  I've had very little time this year to create and to think artistically.  That is okay though.  I like being needed.  I like living with purpose, and I will look back on my kids teenage years and be glad I invested the time and effort.  I may be exhausted at times, like I'm sure you are too, but I'm happy.
Kara and I found ourselves with a Saturday morning free this past weekend. We picked up my mom and headed to Adjectives Vintage Market.  This place is a real treat.  The owners have a vision to make sure that the vendors are true vintage stylists and artists.  Take a look at their dealer list here.
I've been on the lookout for so long for a nice vintage crucifix. I found this perfectly chippy frame too and decided to layer them.  I'm loving it so far.  Trying to decide if it needs a background?  What do you think? Maybe a piece of canvas covered in old sheet music? I have an old hymnal I could use.  I would love your thoughts.
I have to admit that it was my trip the store that really convinced me that I needed to get back to my blog. I'm sure many of you have seen pics of the store on other Central Florida bloggers sites.  If you haven't, stay tuned. I'll take you on a tour.  My creative juices were flowing when I left.  Now, I just need to find the time and energy!  I have picked up a few fun things recently and will share with you over the next few weeks. I love to share my holidays with you too, so add me to your reading list again.  Let's reconnect!  Hope all is well. XOXO


  1. You have been missed however you are a wise woman and mom to know that your family comes first! These years can never be re-wound so your investments are well worth your full attention. Love your newest treasured frame and cross. The sheet music background sounds divine. Blessings...

  2. I HAVE missed you too!! I'm so glad to know that things are good. What a wonderful find, I love those two pieces just the way they are! xoxo

  3. Just love the crucifix...You've been very busy lately, but i'm happy to know everything is alright.

    Hugs, Pietrik

  4. Welcome back, you have been missed!
    Lovely pictures. I am sure you will come up with the perfect way to complete the pairing, although it looks pretty perfect right now.
    enJOY a lovely day,

  5. There You are!! I looked for you at Fancy Flea.
    You are right about Adjectives, they are amazing.
    I do like the crucifix just as you have it, but you can change it later.
    Blogland is so forgiving, I come and go, it's OK!
    You are living your life right...
    Glad to see you are back!

  6. Vicki, you have been on my mind often, and I`m glad to see you here again.
    Your cross and frame looks perfect together, and the very quiet background the cross have now, makes it stand so sharp, and beautiful.

  7. I too love Adjectives Market! Fun, fun, fun!! And very inspiring. Glad to see you're back on the blog. In your absence, I was hoping everything was all right. I think sheet music would look great behind the crucifix.

  8. So nice to hear from you! I love your gorgeous find. Hope you are doing well! Always love my visits here - your blog is so creative and full of inspiration! :)

  9. Hey girlfriend, welcome back, I knew you were busy with the kids, being a good Mom. I love the cross, I think just the way it is it's perfect!


  10. Love the crucifix and frame. The simplicity is wonderful just as it is.
    I remember those times when my kids were so very busy with sports, scouts, sleepovers, etc. I was knee deep in it all! It won't last forever, so do enjoy it now.

  11. Hi Vicki!!

    I'm glad you had time to leave a quick comment at my place. I do not have as much time to blog, or visit any more either.
    I guess it is good that my store is busier, and 5 grand kids take some time too, but such good times. =)

    blessings sweetie

    PS love your crucifix

  12. So glad to see you back, Vicki! I love your beautiful project! I too have those busy teenagers and know where you are coming from. It is so great to be a mom!

  13. Glad to see you back again, and your absence was due to good things. I'd been checking in routinely hoping to see a new posting. Thanks for letting us know all is well.

  14. You are doing what's important, Vicki! Things have been crazy busy with family here, too!

  15. Welcome back. We all need some time to do the things we need to do. I am so happy you are taking some time to play and share again.
    Take care of You. Thanks for popping by....
    P.S. you should see what my DD bought for me.
    Hoping to post about it soon.
    Keep smiling and creating

  16. Vicki,
    so glad to hear from you, have thought about you often! Family is what's important and every thing else comes after! Glad it was all good things that have kept you busy and away! I haven't posted as often since Spring either, was busy helping my daughter get moved into her 1st home and getting ready for my 1st grandbaby and then enjoying her once she got here the end of July! Will look forward to seeing what things you are up to! The cross and frame are lovely as they are but whatever you choose to do with it will be amazing!

  17. heck, it's your blog, suit yourself! frequently life gets in the way of living...we just keep moving forward.

  18. So glad to see you back. I've been checking faithfully.

  19. I've missed your awesome posts, Vicki! This crucifix is such a lovely piece...I love it just the way it is! many blessing to you and your family, Happy Thanksgiving!
