Art-e-ology's 200th Post Giveaway!!!!!!...



Dear Sweet Friends,

Well, today is my 200th blogpost!!  I would not have blogged for so long if it had not been for all of you wonderful Friends.  I can't express enough the joy you bring me and how much I love seeing you here. Our blog community has more heart and soul than I ever thought possible from the internet.  So thank you.  Thank you for your kind words.  Thank you for your talent and all you share.  Thank you for the warm shoulder when I need it.  Thank you for letting me have FITs every week:)  Thank you for being such an important part of my life. 

Love, Jamie

Now.  On to the LOOT!!!!  Sorry it's so late in the day.  Today was CRAZY!!!

I am going to let the giveaway run until next Tuesday (November 16th) and the winner will be announced on the Free Image Tuesday post.  So just sign up here on this post and I will use the random number generator to pick the lucky duck:)

First let me post a disclaimer that the photos you are about to see are HORRIBLE!!  I missed the daylight today so please forgive.  Photographer, I am not!  LOL!!!

The Giveaway is 36 antique photographs.  There are tintypes from the civil war era, Carte de Vista photos, cabinet cards and Real Photo Post Cards.  It is a wonderful set for a beginning photo collection.

The Whole Shebang!


Tintypes and Real Photo Post Cards

Cabinet Cards


CDVs

I hope you like it!!  Thank you so much and Good Luck!!!!  Love, Jamie

Jamie:

Just stopping by to check out any new photos and to say hi.

I love the idea of this give away. What a fabulous way to help someone start a vintage photo collection. You know that I already have a huge collection, so please, don't include me in the contest, as I would much rather see the photos go to a "newbie".
