Olde Tyme Photos

For the next QB5 swap, we are altering pictures of ourselves on honeycomb shaped pages. This is the photo I am choosing. My first "Olde Tyme Photo" when I was 17. Looks pretty authentic all spattered with water and such (it was displayed in a bathroom outside of a protective frame for awhile). I also have to share a photo of me and my honey when we were engaged. I love playing dress up!

Here are the rest-- family photos taken on trips down to Lake of the Ozarks, MO and photos with friends taken at Branson, MO and Eureka Springs, AR.

I have them hanging on a wall in our living room.

They look at home in a 100 year old house, especially when the largest (widest) frame is a true antique (bought at a garage sale!)

I love sepia photos. How about you?

Love these photos - the one of you and your honey is fab (there's no way on earth I'd get MY honey to dress up!).

I had one of these done many years ago with a previous boyfriend and although I loved it there was, of course, no way it could end up on the marital wall! I threw it away (wish I'd kept it and I could have altered the ex into something/someone else!).
