The old guy in the wooden frame (with curved glass over the image) is our children's great-great grandfather.

Apparently, they splurged on the whole portrait thing.. which was a huge splurge back then.

Just the FRAME and glass was TEN dollars!

I'm glad they did.

I treasure this. I didn't possess it until a couple of years ago.

Here is the back of the frame.

The antique iron is one of two I have of my Hubby's mom's family. The little toy tractor on the floor is my Hubby's father's when he was a boy.

(Yes, I know that these things aren't all period proper together. So sue me. I had fun. *grin*)

The glass jar was my Daddy's. The uniform coat on the chair is from a friend of my mom's whose father wore it in a war... WWII.

I like old stuff, you know.

Reminds me of...

Me. :D

I tried to shoot this with my wide-angle lens... but it kept skewing the scene. I suspect that that's what happened to my recent Pet Portrait image (on old bench) even though there were some odd angles in reality.

So, I broke out a lens I never use any more... (I need to sell some stuff, I see)... and shot with it.

It skewed also. *sigh*

Never mind then... *grin*
