Treasure Chest Friday

Pam @ White Ironstone Cottage is hosting a new linky party, Treasure Chest Friday.  One of my favorite treasures is our picture of Mr. Art @ Home's grandmother.  This is her engagement picture taken around 1923, and the frame is also from the early twenties.  It was difficult getting good photos due to the glass, but I tried my best!

I was very close to Mr. Art @ Home's grandmother.  She loved me, and she refused to call me by my name because she did not like it.  She called me "Beauty" instead.  Got to *love* her!  We miss her so much.  Below, you can see the details of the frame a bit better.

Please share your treasures with us @ White Ironstone Cottage!

Until next time...

Blessings!

  13. Beautiful, she was gorgeous. Have you ever noticed most of the pictures you see from that era the women were gorgeous! Maybe the ugly ones never had their pictures taken....HUM
