The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, fatih...Galations 5: 22

This could have been dear mother
In the looking glass of yesterday...
Close souls are with each other,
To join hearts on Valentine's Day...
Poetry by me AJP

I shot this vintage looking self portrait on November 27th, 2011 and since I used it for my new avatar I decided to show the bigger picture in memory of my late mother who I always sent a card to for Valentine's Day when she was alive. .I feel her spirit is still with me.

    These "vintage" are very expertly done! Every time I see that dresser, I am back in my mother's bedroom.

    Thiis is a great vintage photo of you looking into the mirror and maybe the reflection that you see is similar to your mother.

    I don't know how you could improve on these, Andrea. It looks like 1890.
