Musings from Kim K.

I've blown up the Christmas picture to stare at all the amazing presents. Wow. That family certainly came from some money in order to have such lovely items under their tree. I'm so glad you were able to rescue that special piece of history.

That photo is amazing! Definitely worth the giant box of frames. And was OODLES really spelled out like that in that box? Because that is just too bizarre!


Great finds, especially the Christmas picture. That is amazing!

Love that Christmas photo! I wish you would make some copies and sell them...awesome! Love the letters and the oodles in the box cracked me up!

The Christmas photo is pretty awesome. I believe that judging by what you said about the stacking of the frames in back, I think that frame is from the time period of the photo, late 1800. I'm thinking that it is a faux marble or tortoise in the middle stack.

I have a pair of frames similar to it so I have done some research.

Great find!


Shut the front door.......another one and I can't even get one open. I have issues. Do you think they told people not to smile in those early photo days and why? That photo is priceless. Raised tree filled to the gills all the way around. Calligraphy penned. I would buy the whole box for that too. Smiles..and drool...Renee


I love your new shop!


What a great find. I love the type. LOVE. And the Christmas tree photo. As far as the scary lady goes, she does look scary in the first image you posted, but she has a glint of humor if you look closer up, so I am giving her the benefit of the doubt!


Great post!What town in Connecticut did Marjorie Peet Moore live in?
