A GIFT OF MY LADIES FOR YOU

These are some pictures of beautiful calendar ladies from 1894. I bought them in an antique mall here in Fort Worth, the lady was going out of business and she had been selling them for $25 each, but that day she was having a half price sale so I got both for that price. I really couldn't afford to pay that much, but Ladies, pictures or figurines are my weakness, so I put it on my credit card and that was several years ago. I have been looking for them for months, I knew I put them in a folder, but couldn't remember what I did with it. Well a couple of nights ago I was going through some things and there they were. I was so happy. So I thought I would share them with all of you. I think they are soooo lovely......hope you do too.

Here they are in black and white. Just as lovely this way






Hope you enjoy them!! Oh yes, and I hope every one will have Charlene and her honey Larry on their prayer list. Please pass the word around so we can get the heavens bombarded with prayers for them. This is the sweetest couple and they are really in need of our help.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!

Oh thank you for these beautiful calendar prints! Your weakness is our gain--ha ha! I actually came by to visit your Where Bloggers Create post and will head there next. I was trying to figure out why your name/blog sounded so familiar and then it hit me. I think I bought some beautiful lace from your Etsy shop once. I was the crazy lady who headed out on vacation and had to mail you cash from the beach. You were so sweet about it. Thanks again for these lovely prints! Xo, Sue
