How fun are these pictures?

This will be a quick post. I just wanted to share these two pictures I bought last weekend. I didn’t buy much at that sale, but couldn’t resist these pics.

Gasp! How shocking! But, Angelina could learn a pose from this girl. And at least this young lady has some meat on her bones. Speaking of meat on bones…..


God bless him! But aren’t they both just the cutest things? There were some other pictures of the little boy that made me think he might have been mentally handicapped. I want to hug him and pinch those cheeks. Bet he got a lot of that.

That’s all I have for tonight. Oh! Today was the day Google was supposed to have changed everything up. Did I disappear from your readers or subscriptions or whatever was supposed to happen?

Free Graphic Friday – Mother’s Day

I hunted and hunted and was surprised to find I had very few mother and child photos and no graphic type pictures. None! So I’m sharing the two best of what I have. And that’s not saying much.


Wonder why they look so sad? I know people didn’t smile in the old pictures, but they look like their best laying hen died.
I thought it was a poignant portrait, though.



Maybe you can find a use for one of these. And if you like the little boy above, I’ve got a bunch of his. Picked them up at an estate sale. Apparently he was an only child and they took lots of pictures. And he’s almost always in short pants.

Free Graphic Friday

A little late in the day, but it’s still Friday and here’s your free graphic.



This is one, continuous sheet. Pretty close to actual size, and yes, the original is uneven at the top. What do you think. 1920’s? They may need to be darkened a little. It’s hard for me to tell doing this on the laptop. The further back I lean the monitor, the darker the pictures become. I can’t tell what’s correct. I’d love to see anything you make with the graphics! I think I’m going to use one of these on a spoon. I might just hop on that right now in a minute!

Free Graphic Friday

Whoa! I let this Friday slip up on me! I’d intended to do all Easter stuff this month, but today we’ll have to settle for a frilly dressed baby who is actually a family member of mine. It’s Jewel Campbell’s baby. Somebody help me! I don’t know who Jewel Campbell was, but this was in my grandmother’s pictures. And we are kin to some Campbells who were in Clay County, Alabama in the 1800s. So I’m reaching out. Anybody know this family?


Free Graphic Friday

Can y’all stand more free graphics? That’s what I thought. Who can get enough? I’ve accumulated a ton of great graphics and photographs over the years, but have trouble parting with them, yet I’d really like someone to get some use out of them. So here’s my version of Free Graphic day. I don’t have enough to be like Graphics Fairy. Not even close, but I do have enough to do a once a week post with one or two. Haven’t decided how to handle it yet, but figure it’ll all work out. Here are the first two.

To copy them to your computer, put your cursor over the picture, right click and choose save as. If you’re new to all this, be sure you make note of where it’s saving to so you can find it on your computer later. Then you can edit it in your photo editing software to make it smaller if it’s not a good size for your project.

The first one is small, but it is the original size.
