I picked up a few new vintage photos while at Brimfield last weekend.  I am trying to limit my photos to 4 collections:  people at the beach, parade photos, people with eye glasses, and interesting mustachioed men (but would surely buy a woman who met the same criteria).  But the truth is, I mostly buy the photos that “speak” to me.  And so I came home with these 3 little ones.  At 50 cents a photo I kind of felt like it was a rescue mission.

This guy fits my eye glasses rule but he was coming home with me glasses or not.  Just look at his outfit, that hair, his smile and oh that glorious chair with it’s contrasting floral cushion.  It’s hard to look at these and not think about what his future held for him.

And my favorite that I am leaving huge because just LOOK at him (I think).  That belly, that gloriously pudgy baby belly!!!!  As I see it so large I am seeing details I did not see before, who is that on the wall?  What is he standing on?

This is the back of that adorable baby photo.  What do you think it says?  S. Irvin H. Fort the Third?  Sedwin?  I think he looks like a Sedwin.


I was wondering if you had any creative way to display your old photos.  I was thinking on a “clothes line” but am curious what you do with you old photos?  Maybe I’ll put a stack in an old hat and leave it out for folks to riffle through.  hmmm
