A Pair of Glasses


You just know this woman is a librarian. And not married. At least that's what I see when I look at this picture I found in an antique shop. Love finding these old photos and filling in the blanks about people's histories. Well, as she's wearing glasses I chose her image for the Wednesday Stamper challenge which is "A Pair of Glasses."

I had some of the background paper I created yesterday using the Tim Holtz technique left over, so I used it here. I added a stamp from Inque Boutique to that.

And she was always "shush"ing you, too. Really pretty -- like the lace and the button. So, post when you're going to share your Art Impressions (you deserving girl!) loot and I'll try to be civil about your shopping expertise.

No, not a librarian. I think she looks more like a famous author of novels. Nevertheless she is pretty and elegant.
