Can you see what this man has in his little wagon?
Notice this old woman wearing snowshoes, and holding a pistol!
This little girl has the sweetest expression on her face
Besides some old ledgers, tiny photo albums, souvenier books, a few poem books and the wonderful ambrotype I featured in the artwork last posting, my friend Pam handed me a box full of these wonderful images. Feel free to use any of them ! The box also included a Fourth Grade Reader and a 1908 copy of A Christmas Carol. I feel so lucky to have a friend who thought of me when she had no use for these things.

Several weeks ago you may remember me writing about my good friend, Pam, who had given me a huge supply of antique finds her family had no use for. Well she came through again, and I couldn't be more thrilled! This truly is a testament that one woman's trash is another one's treasure!! I will be sharing some old images with you in the week to come, but last night I put together this assemblage out of the ambrotype, ( or daguerreotype, I'm not sure which), an old ledger cover, ledger paper, a verse from a fourth grade reader and more. I threw in a few pieces I had on hand, and THIS is what transpired from it. It is one of those pieces I will have a hard time parting with, and may even later decide to keep it for myself. For now it is in my Etsy shop . Pam, again, thank you from the bottom of this old musty antique find loving heart!!
