I picked up some lovely Victorian/Edwardian photos a little while ago that I thought I would share with you today. I am very picky about adding photos to my collection. Something about the image has to "speak" to me, and I avoid mean looking people. Old photos can be mildly creepy (especially at night) so I never buy children or people who don't look like they were particularly nice. I mean if there are ghosts in the photos I want them to be nice ghosts right?
(On a side note, "old photos of dead people" seems to always be one of the most searched key words people use to find my blog...)
|A rather dapper young gentleman.|
|I just liked the "personality" this photo seems to show (in comparison to many of the more bleak |
couple photos, or wedding photos where the couple looks utterly miserable!)
|Not technically a "card cabinet" photo, but I just thought she was lovely.|
I especially love how frizzy her hair looks!

My weekend went well. The weather outside was rather terrible yesterday so I spent the day inside making lemon curd and studying. Now today I get to spend the day inside eating lemon curd and studying. I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday!
