Victorian children in white and First love
Faded Charms White Wednesday again and it is one of my favorite parties of the week since most of my house is done in white. Be sure and stop over at Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingie Thursday also.
I think I have mentioned before how much I love old prints and the two with the children in white are two of my favorites. The little boy sitting on the edge of the water fishing and the little girl in her prim white bonnet and frilly dress. I purchased these at two at different times. Their frames are very similar and I love the chippiness of the frames. Both have wood backs which I have never removed but would love to take a peak inside hoping that it would give me some idea of the era of the prints.
The last picture is of my sister, a friend named Skeeter and myself. He was our first love. This was taken in the summer in about 1955. Skeeter visited his grandparents every summer and we were his grandparents closest neighbors so if he wanted to play, he was stuck with my sister and myself. Would love to know where he is now. His Grandparents moved in the late 1950's and we never heard from them again.
