Home Sweet Home

Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week is anything goes. I have the lovely globes from GlobeCraft Memories and decided to create a wall hanging of the homestead. I used some old photos that I had in my stash.

Here is the full piece. Hard to see so I took individual photos:

The homestead reminds me of my great uncles farm house in Wisconsin. I remember walking through and playing with all the old photos: 

The next couple look so handsome all dressed up and having their picture taken in front of the porch with the trellis.  The pictures were taken in 1920's. 

Love the expression on the man's face in this photo. She is beaming and he looks so taciturn.

The backgrounds are a combination of papers and stamped backgrounds using the Artistic Outpost Ephemeral Backgrounds Plate, Oz collage, Home and The Outpost Plate.

Very fun to mix and match some of my vintage photos along with some bits of lace, charms, and papers.

I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to get a picture of the project. :) 

Hope your Mother's Day was wonderful! Mine was terrific! Have a beautiful Monday!
