We're in the TEENS!!!

We hit a high of 13 degrees today, almost a heat wave. To celebrate I ventured out at lunch and did a little shopping at the local antique/consignment store. I purchased a couple of new cab cards, some photos and some other fun ephemera.



Granny looks a little stern.

I'm sure she will cheer up when I get a chance to use her picture in some art projects.


Isn't this the cutest baby!

I'm slowly building a collection of images. I stop by every couple of weeks to see what they have new and what's on sale. Granny was 80% off today so she should be smiling (I am).

I don't want to use the original cards so I'll do some high quality scans and print them on my new color laser printer. I haven't tried to alter any yet but I'm getting a lot of good ideas. I have a serious case of OPTION ANXIETY! Any thoughts on how I can get rid of it? I'm up for suggestions.
