Theme Thursday - Couples

I have collected quite a few vintage wedding photos and love to study them imagining what lay ahead for the two people. Weddings are always filled with hope and promise and an excitement about the future. I took the liberty of giving these two a future filled with three children and quite a lovely white house. This is my entry for this week's Theme Thursday challenge.

Ah, Heather, I do so understand your fascination with the vintage photos. I'm that way with my country antiques. I put my hand on my 120 year old step-back cupboard and wonder at the stories it could tell! This is a beautiful piece, made moreso by your thoughtfulness in creating it.

I'm with you for the vintage photos! I made an ATC some time ago featuring a photo of my Great Grandma taken in 1888!
I'm sure this couple won't mind that you have depicted them in a happy Marriage with 3 lovely children! It's lovely!
