1909 Family Photo

This is a photo of my grandfather, his sister and brother taken in 1909. Amazing to think this photo is over 100 years old.

Altered Box

I've had these little boxes for a few years now and never really did much with them. Well that changed yesterday when I was looking for something to alter with paper per the challenge. First altered box titled "Travel". Second altered box titled "Treasure".

1912 German Postcard

I was antique shopping in Carefree/Cavecreek a week ago and found this lovely postcard dated 1912! Thought I'd make a precious collage or a set of greeting cards using this image. So sweet, so pretty... There's a canceled one cent stamp and a lovely birthday greeting on the back, one cent? Can you believe it?

Star Dust ~ Poem by Judy Wood

Shooting stars are simply grit from space colliding with air molecules high up in the sky.

Tonight the air is cool. The night is still.
The scent of night blooming jasmine tickles my nose.
The blanket around my shoulders feels soft and warm.

As I gaze into the starlit sky, lost in thoughts of the coming day
I hear the door creak open.
I feel his breath on my cheek as he moves in close to comfort me.
Together, we fought through the grit of life.

We’ve overcome many trials, others give up, we go on…
I see a shooting star and make my wish…
