"Beverly, 10, and Kaye, 6"
I have a new passion: vintage photos. It all started with the photo above; I loved these two girls on a swing, enjoying a summer day. When it arrived, there was a description scribbled on the back with their names and ages. There was something about seeing these faces, and learning their names, that really interested me. I went searching for other faces and happy moments, and this is the collection I have put together so far:
"Bobbie Boyce, February 11 1927, Oglesby, Illinois"
little boy with american flag...love the tomato garden with tomato plants in the back!
"Alethia Black, age 13, taken October 7, 1903"
Such a beautiful face!
You have to wonder what her life story is.
couple at the beach...they look like they're having fun!
family on their farm at haying time...this picture just makes me happy!
"April 1945, St. Louis Missouri"
I love that someone felt the need to take this 'family portrait.'
They will all be framed and hung in our new apartment, along with other vintage paintings and book illustrations I have found on etsy.
We went to look at our new apartment on Tuesday for the first time, and it's beautiful! We wanted to move in right then and there. My mind is whirring with design and decorating ideas. Looks like we'll be moving in October.
The Kiki La Ru shop is doing well, and I am working on new Cake Bunting, putting together new color combinations. Luckily it's my nephew's birthday next week, so I can combine making his cake with modeling the new bunting.
