Special FIT for You....


This beautiful young lady is a Civil War era cased ambrotype.  I love everything about her.  Her face, her dress, the way she crosses her hands.  My cased image collection holds a special place in my heart. 

Sometimes when I hold them in my hands I think, "I am the only person on this Earth right now who knows this person lived." 

My collection  dates from the mid to late 1800's and for what ever reason they were seperated from their family.   So now, I am their keeper.  I hold their story.  Create something beautiful with her.  Write her a new story.

Love You All,  Jamie

She is so beautiful - just look into those eyes! I know what you mean about being the keeper of such images - I think it's really special that she has now been sent out into the world for people like me to ooh and ahh over. Wouldn't she be amazed?! Is there a name for her anywhere? I guess not or you would have told us.

Thanks for sharing her with us.

This is my first time to your blog and I have enjoyed your art so much. I also wanted you to know I have used two of your photos in my ”Autumn Leaf Babies” where I noted credit to you and linked to your site in my post. Thank you for sharing your images.

Blessings :-)

Hi Jamie,
I've been off the grid for awhile and am just now catching up on reading blogs. Love your gorgeous fall photo & wishing for a little fall here in San Antonio! FITS are lovely too. Also, you must be a very proud mama for raising such amazing boys. Sometimes it seems like the kids are much wiser than we are! Glad you've been having a good week, and keep on truckin'! Sending happy thoughts your way!
