A Gift...

 

We all love vintage photos...or as we like to call them,
Instant Ancestors.
I can't keep track of how many old, sepia-toned photos I have of other peoples mothers, fathers, grandmothers, great uncle Bob's....I'll bet y'all have a lot too, right? They're irresistible.

So, in the spirit of sharing, here is a brand new "instant ancestor" for you  to add to your stash....
it's my very own Mom!
Wasn't she just the most adorable little thing ever?

So, if you're so inclined to decoupage her, or put her in a fairy jar or sprinkle her with glitter, go ahead. 
I don't mind, and I give you permission.
It's my mom, and I'm sharing her with you.

 Goodnight, sweet friends!

Not only is the picture of your mom so sweet and adorable, but it is so sweet that you put her up for everyone. I just love the picture. Also as I am writing this I see your listing for your etsy shop and love what you wrote"shop"green" buy vintage". So true so true!!!!

Hi Anne!
That photo is adorable! And the sweet bow on her head! Oh, I just wish my girls were little so I could tie a ribbon that way. (Bummer, don't think they would go for it now.) Thanks for sharing your mom with us, it is one of my favorite pictures. Too cute, and more precious because she is your mom!

How adorable is she! Love that photo. Any future girls in the family should have to do a photo in the same pose and similar outfit. Of course, it has to be done in sepia tones, too!

Oh Anne, what a sweet pic of your mom. She's just beautiful!

AuroraSuzette said...

She is! Now we know where you get it! Funny note...after my Mother died, we found a box of photos of actual ancestors. Problem is, my Dad couldn't remember who most of them are, so..it's kind of like the terrific ones you find while on the hunt.

I could never smear decoupage over that sweet face ...
I'd copy it and place it reverently in a tiny antique frame or locket ...

thanks for your lucious comments ...
