More new old photos

Here are some new photos for my collection.

Isn’t this Edwardian Lady stunning!
This 1880’s lady has quite the pendant/watch around her neck!

This is the back of the photo.

This older woman has some foxing on her photograph.

Not a hairstyle I’d be happy with.

This is the back.

New family photos!

I bought myself some new photos for my collection. Hope you enjoy.

Looks like a nice little family photo!

Any thoughts on what that ball on a post thing is between the two reclining men?

Here is another nice family photo.

I like the ruffles on the skirt.

Here is the back of this photo.

Hope you enjoyed.

A little costume alteration

I don’t sew for others. I have too much anxiety about botching the job in terms of fit or the other person’s vision or the other person’s vision goes against my taste. Example: I want this gown and I want it in hot pink with neon green trim. Eww…

But I did go outside my comfort zone and altered an already existing costume. It was the uniform in this photo…

It no longer fit and so she wanted it enlarged. She had a pair of pants (that also no longer fit) so I was able to use those to enlarge the jacket.

Almost can’t see it!

It turned out well!

Completed project

I made a gift for a friend. I’m hoping to hang onto it till Christmas but I am so pleased with it, I might not be able to wait. Don’t worry, she doesn’t read my blog so no spoilers.

I got the idea and instructions from this YouTube video: scrapbook ideas | how to make 7 different cards for scrapbook | diy scrapbook

I think it is so pretty!

Instead of filling it with photos, I filled it with quotes about friendship.
