Gothic Arches "Little Boys"




I couldn't believe when I saw that the theme at Gothic Arches is "Little Boys" this week. I am working on a memories/heritage journal/scrapbook, all in vintage style. This is because I found this amazing box of old family photographs while tidying up a cupboard (long overdue)....
Anyway, the image on the cover here is my dad and his brother when they were about 2 1/2 and 5 or so, I think it was taken in 1914. I just love the way they look so prim and proper, not at all what little boys would look like in our day and age. My two sons certainly didn't when they were that age....

Such a gorgeous arch, Astrid! The vintage picture of your father and uncle is so precious - they are so handsome in their coats and white collars! Love the green layered background and keyhole, too. Very beautiful arch!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
