Christmas Card Parade...

Coming in December!
Christmas Card Parade.
Retro, old fashioned and just plain interesting and
beautiful to me. Cards, a dwindling tradition? I hope not,
but I know I send few, so I will put them on
as a parade for all of December.

More Photo Booth pics...

A banquet of colors!

Love Gertrude's hair!

Pals or father and son?

Fashion beauties.

Such a cutie!

This guy is giving a cautious look, if any body has a picture of themselves or anyone else, I'd love to see yours?

Photo Booth Pictures...

I love these pictures. The history is interesting to me and the many different poses and their backgrounds fascinate my brain. I have one of my great aunt with a frame as this.
Here is an early booth picture that I got out of an amazing book I found last year. The ones that I remember from the 70's had more curtains and a darker feel to the inside.

This little lady, also from the book "American Photobooth", is so cute. Do you think that she made her hat? If you look closer you can see the netting that goes completely over down to her shoulders.

This is my favorite of course because of the cute dog, but the lady has a great style too. It is very hard to find strips like the one on the right, still intact. They were always snipped up to share. I will show some more of these later. All the ones I ever had were in black and white. I just love the colored ones though.

Tom Waits, poet, song writer, and yes, free spirit...

He is also an actor. I love reading this guys lyrics! I don't know if he has lived a heavy life but he writes like the blues. His voice is indescribable but definitely unique.

If you know any more about him, let me know. He is definitely my new muse.

A Warm November 1st...

This is a photo from a book called "Women See Woman". This is how I feel this morning. Pretty happy to be alive. We are warm here in Az. but looking forward to milder temps. Maybe I'll go shirtless too! No. Wouldn't want to scare the town folk!
