Wednesday Women 7.6.11

So. I've been working on a secret little project.
And as with most of my little projects, a few trips to the thrifts were involved.
On one trip I hit the jackpot for exactly what I was looking for (yay!) and inside one of the thrifted items I happened to throw in my basket was this photograph.

At first glance I excitedly thought to myself,
Oh goodness, those look like some of my Oklahoma relatives I met only briefly when I was little!
Then I squinted my eyes and inspected a bit closer...
Oh, well, no.  Not my relatives...but gosh, they're adorable!
The glasses! The shoes! The hounds-tooth and polka dots! 
The swing with the fringe on top!

So today I am not sharing a photograph that is a part of my extensive collection of personal family photographs, but a photograph from someone else's family collection.
A photograph that happened to be in the right place at the right time.
A photograph that has definitely seen better days.
And a photograph that has, in three different types of pen, May 76, Aunt Tilly written upon its back.

Are these ladies your relatives?  Is that your Aunt Tilly?!

  1. I've not commented before, but just have to say, I LOVE Wednesday Women. So sad when family photos go astray.
