Images from the Past


Recently I was searching my vintage photo collection for a vintage image to use on a collage. As I searched through these images, I thought some of them would make a great post for Vintage Thingie Thursday. So here are a few of these vintage photographs.








 Feel free to use them since they are my originals and are not copyrighted.  I purchased many of them a number of years ago from Ebay.  The seller had purchased a box of these images at an Estate Sale.  When I purchased them, I told her I planned to use them in my altered art projects.  She replied that she had never heard of "altered art".  Guess that's a good thing or she might have kept them for herself.

Hi Pam, when I saw the thumbnail of that first image, I thought you were gonna say you were feeling under the weather. Ha! Great images. Isn't it amazing what others are selling out there? The folks in these images all had lives and names and stories. I wonder what they were? Best wishes to you for a beautiful day. Tammy

Those are some great vintage photos. It's so fun to look at the style of dress and wonder what their lives were like, etc.
