What a lovely concept. Think about those words. They remind me of one of my all time favorite songs - Imagine, by John Lennon.
It was an inspired name that Lisa, of A Whimsical Bohemian, came up with for this worldwide blogging event she created, now in it's fifth and final year.
Welcome to all my visitors, old friends and new alike. My name is JoAnne and I live in upstate NY in the United States. I'm an avid collector, dabbler, decorator (my own home only) and lover of the arts.
My blog features mostly things I make. Paper dolls, artist trading cards, collage, mixed media. I enjoy participating in collaboratives and swaps which are strewn throughout the blog. There are many Halloween and Christmas posts if you like seasonal art and decor. My archives are on the sidebar if you're interested in something in particular. If not, feel free to wander.
I also host Tutorial Tuesday, where I feature guest artist tutorials in any medium and any style.
As a thank you for visiting I am giving away two pieces I made.this tea stained fabric embellished heart, and

this mini mounted print of a paper collage piece, entitled
"Heart of a Fairy".

All you need to do to be entered is say hello or leave a comment after this post. The winners will be chosen via and announced on February 17th.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed your visit to Vintage Dragonfly. Many thanks to Lisa, all the bloggers worldwide, and to you, my guest.
The links to all One World One Heart participants can be found at
A Whimsical Bohemian.
Enjoy the party!

Hi Joanne - so lovely to meet you. The hearts you have made re besutiful - I prticularly love the embellished heart with the cute vintage label - lovely.
Anyway, I haven't managed full scale nosey at your blog and links yet, because I have a question...
I read the tutorial of the book cover (LOL to the Twilight bit.. I took note!) I would really like to try this transfer thing onto fabric, but I don't understand how it's done... I'm confused about the labels and transparency bit, and how does it actully work? is there some kind of glue? Total novice here.
Thank you for the lovely feedback you gave me..and I agree, dachshund's are terribly cute!!
Look forward to hearing from you when you get chance of course!

Abi said...

Your blog is just beautiful, and I am anxious to explore it more in-depth, so I've signed up to follow you. We both love vintage, so we have that in common...I adore everything vintage, actually, and have the best time combing auctions, flea markets, antique shows, shops and yard sales. Anyway, I'd be delighted to win one of your beautiful giveaways! Thank you so much for the chance to win, and I hope you'll drop by my blog, as well, for a visit.

All good wishes,
