Everyone knows the power of words. We have all experienced the feelings of both joy and sorrow and probably anger by something someone has said to us. And very few among us have watched a certain greeting card company’s television ads without coming close to shedding a tear. Words have the ability to make us feel and sometimes someone else’s written words express those feeling better than we can, or else greeting cards would not be so popular. Add a picture to the words and make it more permanent by putting it on a plaque and you have Vintage Girl Designs.

Maybe her experiences come from her roll as a mother of three, or maybe they come from the eye and heart of an artist. But whatever their

will find balance.
The various sizes of the plaques make them just the right size for giving. There’s sure to be at least one that is perfect for someone you know.
