Recently I got into using antique pictures of babies and children around my house..........this of course is nothing new, the vintage crowd discovered a long time ago how wonderful the sepia and black and white photos looked with the off white shadowy style of decorating......
I wonder what it was like to take your children to get their pictures
taken way back when......were they good, did they squirm??
I really like the ones with animals....
like this one with the horse (of course)
and this dear sweet child with her beautiful kitty...
if you're fortunate you're blessed with lots of vintage
photos of family, and those of course become favorites
my mom and my aunt around 1930
my guess is that even back then having a photo portrait
of your child or children taken was pretty much like it is today....
the moms would fuss over the hair
and the clothes, small bracelets and necklaces were common,
and many a parent probably had to deal with a fussy baby... and hope that in a split second an endearing image would live on forever
Here's looking at you kid!!
Have a wonderful day friends!!!
