Too long!

I'm alive!  It's been too long since I last posted something.  I've been justifying it to myself with the excuse I busted the USB port on my camera.  However, truth be told I've been having one big pity party since my little kitty, Princess Franki died.  Well, I'm over it!  Not her, just feeling so stagnant.  I 've got to get off my big NY behind and get to work.
Besides, an alternative to my camera woes has been in front of me the whole time.  Hello, old scanner friend!  I've decide to post some lovely old photos I found while thrifting a few weeks ago.  I'm a sucker for old photos.  It makes me a little bummed to realize that no one wanted these lovely old memories so I scoop them up.  (I often end up making up little stories of my own for them...I know it's strange, don't judge me!)

These last two are my favorites of that days score.  I think "Baby's 1st Steps" when I look at the top one.  Just darling!
I scanned them to use for ATCs and such, as I would never want to destroy the originals.  I posted them so anyone else could use them too.  If you do use them, let me know, I'd love to see what you made!  Just leave me a comment this here blog or find me on Flickr.  Happy crafting!

P.S.  Coming up in the next installment of Vintage Photo Fun- the man we call, Uncle Jack the Writer.

Aw, I'm sorry about your kitty. That is just so incredibly hard. The photos are great, though. I would love to hear the stories you've made up for them!

Thank you, it sure was tough. As for the photos, I have sooo many. So, I'm going to turn posting them into a weekly thing. I haven't stared at these guys enough to really come up with much :/ Although some are labeled- the fourth one says "Chip 8 mos" I imagine he was the first of many. And the last one says "May 1940- 2 1/2 months" and he looks like a little Charlie to me :)
But the next one's for sure will have a lot more stories behind em, they're my absolute favorites and we've had a lot of time to analyze em!
