Shades of the Departed~ for lovers of photos

A wonderful customer contacted me and asked if I would be willing to write about photos..

Write about them? How neat! I am surrounded by so many beautiful images all day long..that it would be fun to network with others that love them too! On July 11th, this article will be on Shades of the Departed blog.!!!...hope you have fun seeing the article and all the other great things that this website offers! (thank you again!! sooo happy to have found you all!!)

Here is one of My Favorite new additions in my store:
This lovely cabinet photo is of a gal named Pauline Carrier. The photo is dated 1897. When Pauline grew up, she went through and wrote on ALL of her photos! ( I so wish everyone would do that!)
I have lots of photos from her estate, as there was no family left to be their caretakers. One night, My daughter and I sat up until we read each one of them ..and learned all about her brother, her husband, her cousins...soo many beautiful images!
This is one of my is of Pauline in Adrian, Michigan and is of her riding her favorite it! there are a few others in my store, one of her brother at a typewriter and one at one of her birthday parties..
more on Pauline in the days to come...
