Vintage Swimwear Tag Book


Well, the summer installment of A Swap for all Seasons is a Vintage Swimwear Tag Book. I had so much fun making the tags for the Red Lead Tag swap in March so I knew I'd enjoy this one too. This book is smaller...we only needed to make 16 tags. Linda will mail them out to each of us on the first day of Summer...of course! I came across this wonderful old photo of these two women on the beach and thought it would be perfect. They look like they're great friends or maybe sisters. And they look so stylish with their bobbed hair and those great swimsuits! I imagined they were summering near Paris. A handsome Frenchman offered to take their photo. They think they saw him last night at their hotel dancing first with an older woman and then with a young girl. Could he also be vacationing...perhaps with his mother and sister? Will they see him again tonight at the Grand Buffet? Was his name Claude or was it Marcel? Hmmm....

Very pretty tag, Linda! Love the vintage photo - they do look so stylish, don't they? You've captured the mood perfectly with your sea colors and little starfish. Can't wait to see the finished book!

Wonderful tag, Linda! And I love your personalization of the photo. I want to hear the "rest of the story"!
