I received this wonderful easter card from my sweet neighbour Jess who is 75, she got it about 15 years ago from her 95 year old friend Olive. Olive received it from her aunt Olive when she was a little girl. So this little card has passed many hands I would date it from the mid 1920's to the 30's. The sad part is it was never played with, which is why its in such wonderful shape good.  this is a good thing for use today but poor little Olive never had the heart to play with her doll for fear of hurting it. I'm passing this little one on to you all and I hope she played with and enjoyed.
Take care Deborah

This is one of my favorite tintypes, I call her ringlet girl. She came in a beautiful case with a glass cover, the photo is in perfect condition a rare thing with these old tintypes. I fell in love with her hair, it must of taken her forever to do. The bottom image is untouched and the top has been given a LONS makeover.
Hope you like her as much as I do
Take care Deborah

I just got back from visiting my father on Vancouver Island. I always forget just how beautiful the island is and the weather is perfect. I had a wonderful time and was able to pick up a few treasures, I hope to be listing some soon in my etsy shop. I missed last weeks FIF Dad is the only human I know that still won't get a computer let alone the internet, I was out of the loop for a whole week. Anywho I'm back and here is a lovely collage sheet full of lasses in attire from the 1700 hundreds.
The images are from my 1880 book Zur Geschichte Costume.
Enjoy Deborah

I just received a huge box of ephemera from a wheeler dealer friend of mine. I'm just starting to sort through it and already I found a whole bunch of goodies. These wonderful graphics are from some old trade cards. 
Enjoy and have a great weekend Hugs Deborah

I'm a photo junkie, and my obsession is so out of control that I hoard old photos of folks I don't know. I think I have more images of strangers than I do of my own family. Maybe somewhere in my collection I actually have a shot of a long lost relative and I don't even know it. Here are a few snapshots I put together to make collage sheets. Love the gals with their guns, I have used this image for a stamp people ATC they are so much fun!!!
Enjoy and have a great weekend Hugs Deborah
