When there were no blogs


Found this old photograph at a garage sale yesterday. Can you imagine the set-up for this? (Be sure to click on it for a closer view.) The woman wants to display all of her needlework pillows, the girl wants her dolly and buggy in the picture, oh, and put down the rug and the new table, pick some phlox from the garden, put it in a vase and hold a sprig of it, and get the dog in, too!

This is like her blog -- a way show friends and family her projects, her house, her life. That's what we're doing, isn't it? Look, see, I want you to know what I'm doing, where I am. I want you to know that I'm smiling.

What a great comparison! I never would have realized that if you hadn't pointed it out.

I just love old photos- in fact, the very first post in my blog adventure was with a 1923 advertisement for Chevrolet.

That is extremely cool. Somehow it makes me feel so sentimental and such a closeness with that woman in the photograph. Amazing to think how our desires as women and people really have changed very little over time. Back then she too wanted to be understood, appreciated, and heard too. I really love that image, very touching. Thank you! Cece
