Some Freebies for You....

This week I decided to post some of the photographs I have been scanning from my collection. I have included lots of little boys. Although I use a lot of vintage photos in my art work, I seem to not use a lot of male images. So, this month I am trying to include more males in my artwork. I hope you will enjoy these as much as I have.

Three little boys with there sister. I love how the baby's hair is slicked down. The little girl with her big bow and very cute glasses. She looks like she just know that these boys are going to be a handful.


This little one is so sweet in his lace. Yes this is a little boy. In fact the picture below is him a few years older. It was quite common to keep baby boys in dresses till they were potty trained and could maneuver the buttons on pants.


I love this picture of this young lad. His hands and feet are so big, yet he still has that boyish appeal. I bet his voice is just a hint away from squeaking when he talks. Till then he looks all handsome in his suit.


I purchased this picture in Montana. I love the fur and way his little leather shoes are all worn. I have several photos of this child up until manhood. He has a presence.



Here is the little one in fur a few years older. Still wearing a little dress. It won't be long before he graduates to pants. I love this picture. The lovely wicker chair, the lace dress, the little worn boots, and his cute little page boy hair cut. Just a very loved child.

Thank you for sharing these treasures with us, Elizabeth. For some inexplicable reason, I too, don't use too many images of little boys in my work. These are wonderful, and I love the way you have a 'story' behind each of the faces. Looking at each of these adorable faces, it's hard NOT to think of their lives. Hugs, Terri xoxo

These are lovely photos of the little boys in their baby dresses. So different these days when my 6 month old grandson has cute little jeans on, and his sister, not yet two, wears jeans and shorts as well as very modern little girl dresses. That little boy standing on the chair with his toes turned in is adorable.
