Great old Photo

I was out with my aunt for dinner last night,
she was going through some of her photos and came across this one..
It is of my great Grandfather and his dog when he was little!
Old black and white photos are my favorite thing I think!
When I ever design a clients house I all ways  try to incorporate old photos and take there existing photos and make them that vintage look.

Your parents are a great help!

Thanks Traci for letting me share a booth with you!

The ideas for display  are already poring inn!!
P.S thanks for letting me use your photos as

I held a dinner after the show Saturday night.....

Its kinda became a tradition every market between all of us.

I held it at my friends store “ The Denim Loft”,
 that I do my design out of....

I had collected a lot of vintage wine glasses so I thought it be fun to really get some use out of them that night.....

And why not throw in the vintage rose china!!

We all come from different backgrounds and states but watch out
