Vintage Photo Sunday

I haven't written a Vintage Photo Sunday post in a long time.  I have so many old photos, and like to share some of them with you.  Hope you like the ones I chose for today.

Who doesn't love a picnic!

Blogoversary Giveaway

I have a blogoversary coming up real soon so I am having a giveaway.  Anyone who leaves a comment on this post will have a chance to win the little quiltie pictured here.  I will draw for a winner on Sunday, July 15 late in the evening.  So if you have not entered before Sunday, you still can enter that day.

I made this quiltie using one of my favorite photos. It is a 1920's photo of a group of women who are probably gathered for a class reunion. They are posing by playground equipment - a Giant Stride - or at least that is what we called it when we were children.  The piece measures 4" x 6" and is ready to hang.  The photo is printed onto white cotton, and the fabrics, trims and button are all vintage.  Good luck, and I hope you will enjoy it.
