charmed, i'm sure

Welcome to my post for Sonia's Show Your Vintage Charm party held to celebrate the launch of her new magazine, Creating Vintage Charm.

In Sonia's editor's note, she describes her venture as a lettera d'amore to the generous world of bloggers, talented artists and friends who have affected her in countless ways. For my post, I would like to echo that sentiment by sharing a few photos of charming vintage figures from a few (among many) of my charming and cherished vintage-loving blogging friends.

My mermaid from Lizzie, of Vintage Lizzie
This timid little figure that I named Millie came from Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage,

and this sweet Birthday Girl came from Debi at Life in My Studio.
