Free Image Tuesday Beauties For You!...

Sisters Forever.  A beautiful cabinet card from Wauseon, Ohio.  I put a background page behind the photo so you could see the wonderful scalloped edges of the card.  Their necklaces and outfits match and I am not quite certain they are sisters, but I like to think so:)

Little Miss CDV photograph.  Her beautiful dress forms a cape in the back and has such wonderful ruffles and detailing.  She seems shy and tiny in front of her big studio backdrop.

Little Man CDV.  This CDV (cartes de visite) sized photo is a very early one.  Based on the hair style and clothing of our fella I would date this photo to the early 1860s.    A lovely studio chair adds to the beauty of this one.

Cutest FIT EVER!!!!!!...Wait...Have I Already Said That?...The NEW Cutest FIT Ever!!!!...

Ok, Guys.  I could not WAIT to get this from the mail to share it with you  all!!!!  Whether it is intentional or not, she is making the American Sign Language sign for rabbit/bunny.  Is that not the sweetest thing EVER?!!!  And how perfect for Easter.  I LOVE HER.  She just melts my heart.  It could also be interpreted as a peace sign which is just as wonderful.  She is definitely high on the favorites list in my photo collection.  Just look!!!!!!

And yes, I KNOW I said no more Winter cuties, but come on.  Is she not gorgeous?  Her little Dalmatian spotted collar and sleeves are so sweet!! And those pouty lips!!  I couldn't help myself:)

I am in the process of setting up a Flickr Group for all the wonderful art created with the FIT images.  If you don't have a Flickr account don't fret.  I have been saving the links to your blogs and artwork so I will be asking you if I can post them to the group.  A link to your blog page will be listed in the description section. Thank you so much for creating such wonderful art with these images.  It makes my heart sing:)  Love, Jamie 

It's been a long time since I had my Quote for the Day.  So, here is my new favorite.

"Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you respond to it."

****The small print: FIT images are free for you to use in your mixed media collage and digital artwork. I would love to see what you create:) They are not to be used in collage image sheets for sale or image CDs for sale. That's wrong! LOL!!

All materials shared in this set are from my own personal image collection.

Ready For Spring, Now?...Yes, Please...

Well.  I certainly hope that is the last of the snow! It is totally gone now except for the giant snowball in the backyard. The boys were SO excited to get to play in snow again.
I. Was. Not.

Do you know how much more laundry snow creates when you have no regular snow outfits??? Or snow boots???  As you can see by this photo I wrapped the boys' socks in plactic grocery bags and then put on their shoes to keep their feet dry.

Mother of the Year, Folks! LOL!!

It's all just an endless cycle of play outside, get soaking wet, come inside for hot chocolate while Mom dries your shoes/gloves/coats in the dryer, put on new clothes, rinse and repeat. So. Please stay away snow. We are done with you. I don't know how you Gals who live with lots of snow do it!! My hats off to you:)

New digital piece starring Mr. Creepy/Beautiful. You can find him in the FITS too:) Love, Jamie

Lovely FITs For You...Spring Has Sprung!...

I am finally feeling more like myself and I *think* Spring may be here.  Glorious Spring!!!!  I have been taking photos with my new Nikon D90 and I LOVE it!  It was a Christmas present from my Sweetie:)  I have set up bird feeders around the back yard so I am hoping for more birdies.  In the mean time I have found a lovely secluded place here in town that is a haven for winged things.  I have spent a few afternoons out there clicking away while the boys run around and play.   Here are a few of my recent photos:

I have lots to learn about my camera, but that's part of the fun too.

Here are the FITS for this week.  I hope you enjoy them and use them in your art pieces:)  Love, Jamie

Don't you love her boots? She is really beautiful and the roses on her dress are wonderful. I wonder if this was her confirmation photo?

This cutie has triple the cuteness!!  I love those frilly sleeves and how his sweet feet stick out straight in the first and third photos:)

As a Mom this one makes me break out in a cold sweat.  I could not see putting my little ones on the edge of a small table like that!!!!  But, she is adorable in her crocheted outfit and the little hood is fabulous.  I am going to use her in a digital piece and when I cut her out of the background i will post the .png:) 
I hope you have wonderful week.  Love, Jamie

Free Image Tuesday..On Wednesday...Can't Let You Get Too Spoiled!...LOL!!

What can I say?  Thank you each and every one of you.  Your words helped so much.  I am writing you each individually but I must also say it here: Thank you. Love, Jamie

Lovely Civil War era Girl.  Her dress is amazing and I am really loving the studio prop tassels on the table.   I bet she was firecracker:)

Small mounted photo from the early 1900's.  I thought I would get a winter Cutie Pie in the FITS before Spring comes:)

This is a cabinet card from the late 1800's.  It says, "Uncle Charlie" on the back.  This is one of the few cabinet cards I have of this size.  It is 8.5 inches by 4 inches.  I love how Charlie's little right hand is holding his gown.  Precious!

Cabinet card photos that are framed in a fancy mask like this one are usually Memorial cards.  The little girl's name is written on the back as Edith Fairfield.  She was beautiful.
