I also bought a couple of old tin photographs. I have been thinking about love and relationships recently, and I find myself drawn to pictures of couples and families. Sometimes people are brought together in strange, even inconvenient circumstances, and at times we find love in times, places and people we least expect it. This picture below was taken at the Indiana Fair in April, 1925. I love the closeness of these two individuals, and the girl's dress and her coy smile are beyond beautiful. Her side-swept hair reminds me of someone I know.
I was drawn to this photo below because of the girl with the white bow in her hair. Just look at her strappy shoes! I ended up buying the photo because of the overall dynamics, though. I love the way the photographer has worked the fence and the surrounding nature into the picture, and I think the portrait is beautifully balanced.
This one I wasn't sure of at first, because it is not a particularly happy photo. It seems that perhaps the family isn't all that wealthy, and considering how young the parents look, they might have their hands full trying to support the size of their family. I bought the picture anyway. Actually, it was the sense of seriousness that I was drawn to.
These following pieces of jewelry are not from the antique show, but from my friend Lynn's vintage jewelry stash. The micromosaic brooch and clip earrings are Italian.
Lynn re-wired these cute grape earrings.
And I can never resist a big crystal brooch.
That's it for now, folks. I hope to get well soon enough to post some outfit pictures, to visit your blogs and to write about things more substantial. Oh, and before I forget, thank you, Terri, for giving me the heads up on Wisconsin Death Trip! I found it on Amazon and ordered it. And Madeline, thanks for letting me know about the film Opium. I will try to find a way to get my hands on it!
