Lots to Do Challenge - Vintage


I am fascinated by the interplay of vintage images and papers with colourful, vivid and often busy backgrounds. I think these backgrounds give old photographs a wonderful sense of whimsy and playfulness despite the fact that the subjects were often very solemn in their stance and expressions. I envisioned this woman, whom I named Juliet, flipping through the Eaton's catalogue choosing furnishings for her home. Perhaps she can actually afford them or maybe she just likes to dream. This is my entry for the Lots to Do Challenge this week.
