Theme Thursday - Love, Romance, Weddings


I sometimes think about using vintage photographs of people like I thought about playing with paper dolls when I was young. I look at them closely and I try to imagine what their lives were like at the time of the photo, before it was taken and after. Were they happy, sad? Did they have difficult lives? Posing for a photograph usually, but not always, requires a smile and a semblance of happiness. This is a round robin page that I created and it is my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.

Gorgeous Heather! Love the colours and all the elements you put together

Heather said...

So sweet! There is just something about old photos that make it seem like every day was romantic. And I want that house too! Wonder if its still around...

Rosie said...

At last! Somebody else who makes up stories! Beautiful work Heather.

Such a gorgeous work of art, Heather. Sometimes the photos don't show smiling brides, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. (see my entry). One of my favorite wedding photos is of my uncle and aunt back in the early 30s. She looks scared to death.

Heather; this is SO beautiful. How romantic. This tells a story truly!

Sherry said...

Oh I used to do that too!! I'd sit with the Eaton's or Simpson's catalogues (seems like 100 years ago since we had those catalogues! Collectors items now!) and before I'd cut my "family" I'd decide who looked like they belonged together..and then I'd choose their furniture the same way!! What a great memory Heather!

Char said...

Great color. Love the couple. Very cute.

Sherry said...
