Tuesday Freebie!...


I just got some new photos yesterday and this lovely was in the group. On the back it says:

J.H. Nolan,
Photographist,
Waterville, N.Y.
This Negative Preserved.
1865

Feel free to copy and use it in your art. The only thing I ask is that you let me see it:) The original is a little faded. You might want to darken it in Photoshop. I thought it would make a good Mother's Day something. I am just in LOVE with the little off the shoulder dressses the girls wore at that time. Thank you for your well wishes for the baby. We are off to the doctor this morning.
Oh, and this is why you will never see any clever baked goods or beautifully presented meals on my blog. I don't like to cook and I have proof. I found that GROWING in the back of my pantry. I guess I have a green thumb after all! I also may be a chemist, because I think I may have the cure for the plague in the back of my fridge.

Thanks for sharing the great photo.
Hope everything goes well at the doctor visit and your baby is better soon.
The "nose issue"/rhinoplasty went well and the patient is recovering nicely, thanks for your comments. They WERE helpful.

Hope everything goes well with the little mister. I remember it all too well. It does get better, my guy is 6 now, and you'd never know that he was ever on a neb. Lots of positive vibes for you guys.

Awesome photo, I always wish I could see the colors in those old B&Ws, the people in them always seem so surreal!
