I was back to my favorite Sun. morning flea market and found this old photo album. The cover just grabbed me and when I opened it up it was just full of picures. Some pics have the name of the photographers studio and address and I was tickled to see that some were from Toronto where I came from, one from Picton, Ontario also for my Canadian readers and some were from Rockford, IL which is just north of Chicago near the Wisconsin border. The rest seemed to be in the upstate New York area. The clasp is broken but the cover was so pretty I couldn't resist it. I have to get to a Michaels or somewhere to find a stand to fit it. I also took a few pics of the people photographed in it. One handsome young man, an elegant couple and a young boy. That one reminded me of a picture of my Father as a young boy in Ireland with the same knickers and high top boots except he had his dog laying at his feet. I took a pic of the album and a close-up of the two children on the front cover. Right now I have it leaning against a little screen on my bakers rack I bought for outside in the sunroom. I will post a couple of pics of it and the rack. The room is just about complete because we had almost all the furniture and the only thing I bought was a table to go beside one rocker and I also found a lamp Sunday with a 3 way switch for $5.00 and a lampshade for $1.00. Love those flea markets. I am gong to take the shade to JoAnns and buy a small trim to go arond the top and bottom to cover the tape. It is just a white plastic shade but will do.

I did make it to JoAnnes today and once I hot glue the trims on will take some pics outside.

Such tales you can imagine from these lovely pictures from days gone by....
Your needlepunch motifs from the previous post are just lovely, too.
