Happy Flag Day!

In honor of Flag Day, June 14, I would like to say HAPPY FLAG DAY! (It is also my firstborn’s birthday.) I thought I’d take this opportunity to share some vintage photos I found recently of school children showing off their United States flags. Oh, if only names and date and location had been written on the backs of these!

I am thinking these photos are from the early 1910s, based on their clothing and the fact that the flag with 48 stars was adopted in 1912. There are so many of you who are more knowledgeable at this stuff, please feel free to offer any thoughts about these photos!

Enjoy this day!

Happy Easter: Vintage Easter Photos

I just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a Happy Easter!  It has been a beautiful day here today.  The shop was fun, but I think lots of people are traveling.  Traffic into the shop was light.  Here are a few more vintage and antique images for Easter!

“One who claims that he knows about it, Tells me the earth is a vale of sin, But I and the bees and the flowers doubt it, And think it’s a world worth living in.” Family postcard from the early 1900s (my children’s paternal great-grandmother).
