Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

just for fun…

I love buying old photographs.  Most people would say, “Why in the world would you want to buy someone else’s photos?”  Well, most of you who follow me here {who’ve begun to understand me} know why.  I enjoy working with old pictures…crafting them into fun new creations. here is a fun one

I also love the hidden stories that are held within them.

One of my purchases last year became a wonderful, true-life story with a bittersweet ending. story here with follow-up here

Lately I have picked up a few that just make me laugh {hopefully not at the expense of one of your kin}.

Maybe they will bring a smile to your face as well! :0)

I love how ‘Carl’ has himself postured in this picture!  {it just makes me laugh}
