Wonderful creations. Thank you for introducing Alwen and her world to us. I am especially drawn to old photographs of people or scenes of life from the past. I have one old photo, probably from the beginning of the 20th century which I bought in Canada in an Antique store. It shows three children, ages about 8 to 11 (two girls and one boy) in their Sunday best, sitting on a high, horse drawn buggy (with a very big wheel). Maybe they were going to church or to a Sunday picnic. The girls are wearing beautiful white dresses, the boy is in a dark suit. The moment I saw this photo, I knew I had to buy it. I framed it and it hanged in my house for many years. I didn't know who these people were, but I felt like they were my family. Now, they are still in a box in storage waiting for the time we move to a bigger place. I miss them.


She, like you, has a way with vintage treasures and words. You have a lot in common. :) Beautiful, interesting post.

They would make a beautiful book!
Love her use of Fr handwriting in particular...

Quick, brother Mathew fainted! Where's are the smelling salts?
)Quite brave of him, though, to actually look at all these treasures until he could take it no more!).

WOW!! I'm drooling over those beautiful antique pharmaceutical bottles with their gorgeous sepia labels, the lovely old handwritten mailing labels, the artful arrangements...holy cow!! :)
