Tea-stained papers............

Isn't this little 5x7 hand-cut image the cutest thing?! My (older) heh, heh,
cousin here in town made her for me many birthdays ago in 1986 and I just found it cleaning out a drawer of stashed "treasures". I think back in that era everyone creative was doing tea and coffee stains on paper, and also these "silhouette" type pictures. Hers is very intricate, and I love especially the tiny little heart-shaped pockets on her apron! By the way, if you click on my photos on this blog, they are supposed to greatly enlarge so you can see details!
