Anyway, I had thought that it might be fun to print an image from an old tintype that I had tucked away. I searched in my desk and located a few tintypes of people I couldn't identify before coming across this tintype of my father's parents who were married in 1902. The tintype image is quite dark, but I was able to lighten it for this post.
Tucked in the tiny envelope was another tintype of a young boy.
Examining it closely it was clearly my grandfather as a young boy; for the ears are exactly the same on the boy and the man. The photographer had applied a tiny bit of pink to the cheeks which was a common practice with tintypes. That's not the surprising part. I was stunned to see how much the image looked like my brother seen below between my friend Cathy and me. I couldn't stop looking at the amazing, incredible resemblance. What a pleasant and fascinating surprise!
By the way, I often refer to Cathy as my forever friend. As you can see, we really have known each other forever. :-) We were all smartly dressed for her birthday party held in her backyard. She had recently emailed me this cute photo (FYI: I'm the one on the left with the long banana curls :-)
Below are two quilted incubator covers that I made this weekend when I got together with quilting friends in Stoughton. These covers will be donated to a Boston hospital.
This afternoon I also finished three pillowcases which will be donated to charity efforts at our guild.
Have a colorful, full, fun week ahead.
