I had fun yesterday looking around a chain Thrift-used store called Treasure's of the heart.
The dressing table's arrangement in the antique section and the old studio portraits especially caught my eye. I am always curious about the people in these vintage photos that leave their impression behind, long after they are dead...Who were they? If I were going to take a guess, they look like they could have been teachers in their day.

    I have been going through very old photographs too. It is very touching to look at them, and wonder what their lives were like. This is marvelous, Andrea! I couldn't help but notice the paper "Beautiful Ohio"....which is my home state. I wonder what all was in that pamphlet. I would have LOVED to seen it.

    Great find and shot, Andrea. This reminds me of the sheet music I have of my Grandma Clara's. She played the piano beautifully.
