Freebies - Currier & Ives Beauties

Thought I would do something
frivolous this week for my
freebies. I have a fondness for
Currier & Ives prints.
All of these were done before
1847. They give you the
idea of what was in fashion
and what was considered
beautiful then. I am so
glad we do not have to
wear our hair like that
any more. However, I do enjoy
putting my hair up in a bun.
I also would not mind some of
the jewelry they wore back then.
Just saying...

Hello Elizabeth
I've just become your newest follower! I arrived at your blog via Patty of Magpies Nest!

I have a darling granddaughter in France named Stella Rose! I smiled when I saw your sons new puppy of the same name!

I've had a lovely wander through your blog with my coffee this morning Elizabeth!
I've picked up two beautiful children's images for my collage - thank you so much.

I would love you to pop over and say hello to me too one day and I'll get out my prettiest teacups and make you very welcome!
