Beautiful Vintage Photos

Hello dearest friends. I hope that you are having a great week!

Last week I received the most beautiful vintage photos that I had ordered from Etsy, and thought that you might like to see them. Of course, they deserve to be displayed in a lovely setting, at least for a little while..

Who can resist these beautiful little girls...

...or these lovely dancers?...

This little lady is one of many that I have
depicting little girls wearing big bows...

...and likewise, one to add to my collection
of little girls holding dolls...

That I now own this photo of these pretty
little blonde sisters makes my heart sing.
Don't you just love that they are holding
twin dolls?...

Of course, this charming group
 was added to my collection
of photos of dancers...

...but this little fairy girl dancer 
is just stunning...

And, as friends often do,
we share things,
so here is one for you...

Right click and save, and use as you wish.
This photo is so old I can't imagine that
there is any copyright protection afforded
to it.


Today I am joining Wen's Simply Neutrals Tuesday Party.
Why don't you pop over there and join the fun!
You can find Wen's blog here.


Dance through the week,
and find some creative time!

We are headed up to The Wren's Nest
to add some finishing touches
and to start getting her ready to be closed down
for the winter.

Thanks so much for coming by!


  1. Hi Sue
    What delightful vintage cabinet cards these are. Love the sweetness of those little girls. That dance group image is so unusual and beautiful.
    What is the name of the Etsy shop that sold these? You must have a beautiful collection of cabinet cards. One can only imagine! Thank you so much for sharing these ones for us!

    1. Hi Suzy. Thanks for your sweet comments. I purchased the photos from two different shops. They were "decorables" and "thebluewhaleantiques". Worth a visit! XO

  2. Awesome Sue!!! Absolutely gorgeous images; and beautifully displayed too. I like how you've set them out. I hope we will see more of these in your projects as time goes on. THANK YOU for sharing too! She is so sweet~ Enjoy your last hurrah up there : ) Karen O

    1. You are welcome Karen! Thanks for visiting and leaving such sweet comments!

  3. You got a lovely collection here, dear Sue. Thanks for the beautiful photo:)
    Have a safe trip.
    Hugs and love,

    1. You are welcome! We got up here just fine, but it has been pouring rain all day. Hugs and love back!

  4. Hello Sue,
    I also adore your new find, of beautiful old photoes, they are so wonderful all, and you have displayed them lovely, in your home.
    They are kind of difficult to find here, as everyone have collected over a long time :-(
    Thank you for sharing the tiny sweet fairy, Sue, and enjoy your time in your Wren's Nest.
    Dorthe, xo

    1. Thank you Dorthe. I am always glad to have the pleasure of your visit. Blogging friends make my heart sing! Hugs to you.

  5. Your photos are beautiful. I have lots of old family photos like this that I much cherish. Hugs, Valerie

    1. You are so lucky to have old photos from your family. I have some from my family as well, but the only cabinet cards that I have are of my great grandparents. Which is why I collect so many from other sources. "Instant ancestors" as they are called! Hugs back Valerie!

  6. Oh my goodness Sue what a gorgeous collection and so beautifully photographed! You are so lucky to have these photos. My own family photos are my prized possession. Thank you for sharing the adorable fairy too!

    1. Thanks, Nancy! And you are welcome for the photo. Have a great day! XO

  7. Oh how sweet they are!! Such beautiful old photos. How wonderful to collect them. Especially the dancers, which I love. Thank you sweetie for sharing one of the photos with us, of the sweet little fairy dancer! Wishing you a beautiful day, hugs xx

    1. Hi Wen. Thank you for your lovely visit and I'm glad that you liked the little fairy dancer! Hugs back!

  8. Oh my, those are such sweet images, absolutely adorable.

  9. Hello Sue, Your girls are so sweet. Thank you for sharing one with us. I love her knobbly little girls' knees, just like my daughter's before they blossom into gorgeous gazelles. The one with the giant bow is so lovely too. My daughter never let me put ribbons in her hair. I have to stand back and let her dye her hair with red cochineal, and wear gym pants and cool tank tops while all the smocked dresses I made for her stay in the cupboard! Ouch! I think that's why I collect these old photos, too!



    1. Thanks, Jesse! I know what you mean about our own kids. My own daughter developed her own fashion "taste" when she was in first grade, so gone were the bows and other pretties. And it only got worse as she approached the teenage years. I get my sweet revenge now, though, because she is herself the mother of a teen aged girl! XO


Thank you for taking the time to comment on this post!
