Cheery thought...



During my Brocante browsing I am a sucker for old photographs and postcards; I am always sad when I think of a life ending up in a scrappy old box on the pavement. Often I wonder why families don't keep their photos. I am especially sad when I see cute photos of little children...

I love cast off old photos, too. My mom and I used to go through boxes of them at antique malls and say that we were collecting instant ancestors. I still think of old photos that way.

Hi Linda,
I loved his work and was great to see my
identification with him.
I am also a worshiper of photos, papers, old books.
Fabrics, rags, buttons, lace, are a very healthy habit!
Glad to see that you a liked "church interiors, iconography and incense; smells and bells", I like the theme of "churches" saints, martyrs, and other religions alike.
A theme rich with symbols and icons that attracts me a lot!
Before having any belief, and I appreciate everything that involves researching this topic.
I enjoyed finding you in this universe BLOG,
surely I will accompany you.
Nice to meet you.
Greetings from Brazil
hugs
li

(I also am very sad to see family photos thrown in any box on the sidewalk)
