Feature Friday – Diana 70

beach scene pin up girl for sewingToday's feature is going to be another "short on words" one because the pictures do the talking. Diana from Diana 70 makes something that I hadn't come across before and it is adorable! She produces high quality cross stitch patterns from art prints, vintage pinup posters, and celebrity photos. Of course, I just love the pinups! I think I would actually enjoy doing cross stitch if I ended up with a retro sexy pillow cover. Having one of these lovely vixens on my green antique goose neck sofa would be an interesting surprise that I would enjoy! Here are some of my fav's, but be sure to check out Diana's whole shop for some gorgeous patterns. The squirrel one at the bottom cracks me up! Love it!                                                                                                   To view her delightful shop in full, click here.

  9. There's something about the old pinup girls that scream 'style and grace'. Something like a pillow cover on our sofa would just add that extra bit of moi into the mix. Now it's covered with baby stuff and blankets. Thank you for sharing and linking up to the Empowered Living hop, I hope to see you again.

  18. I really like how sexiness was mixed with innocence and fun in the past. Now it is sexy to look like a prostitute on drugs. A shame.
