After weeks of enduring below-freezing temps, we finally got above 30-degrees, today! Woo-hoo! I'm now sitting in an Internet Cafe in the Old Market area. Sean is drinking an Eskimocha (coffee, brown sugar and chocolate syrup) and I'm having a Turtle Mocha. Sean and I stopped at a couple of antique stores before coming in here. I scored with finding four old photographs. I don't have photographs of my own ancestors so I borrow from others (well, the photos that have been discarded, anyway).
Here are the photographs I picked up today (just click on the thumbnail, and it will open up in a new window for you to print out). Two were a dollar a piece, and the other two were three dollars a piece. These antique shop owners are getting smarter. They know people are "on the hunt" for old photographs. I found some really fun "Betsy McCall" (remember those?) paper dolls in another antique shop. But since the paper was stuck to those yucky magnetic albums, the paper started to yellow. It's too bad. Those paper dolls would have been so much fun to work with. Anyway, here are the photographs. Feel free to use them in your artwork. But, if you do.....I would LOVE to see what you've created. So, don't forget to stop back here and let me know or drop me an email, OK?
