Back in the summer I found a couple of old photos, one a tin type, at our local flea market. I later found old doilies, post cards, an old book, pearls, a broach I had for ages, and various other pieces. This is what I did with them.
It's a glimpse into a past era.
Now I have been on the hunt for photos and postcards I can use to tell the stories of days gone by. I have a couple of pieces from the mid 1940s WWII time. I need a photo of a soldier of that decade. I'll keep looking.
I can take the same idea and use broken wine bottles, corks, wineglass pieces, old china, teacups, etc, and go in all different directions.
Right now I have these 2 beautiful young ladies.
The back is blank. There is no hint at what was going on in her life or when this was taken. I'm thinking it was a communion day, but she seems a little old for that. Her shoes are very fancy indeed.
The back of this one does tell us something, but I have no idea what language this is or what it says. The only thing I can see is April 1918, in the left bottom corner.
Both of these came from an antique shop near Charleston.
Maybe there is a slim chance someone can read it and tell us something about this little girl in black.
