A free image for you ~ and prom!!

My husband was out running a few errands Saturday morning and stopped by an estate sale. He came home with two of the most beautiful framed prints and a gorgeous embossed box (I'll be sure to show you soon). Both were women framed in very old frames and the glass was even wavy! I took them apart to clean them, one was really stuck to the glass and had a little damage but this one came apart easily. While I was waiting for the glass and frame to dry I scanned her in for you!! He knows exactly what I love.....

Our seventeen year old Chase went to the prom this past Saturday night . . . he and his date had such a great time. Seems like yesterday he was just a baby!!

Today's been one of those days of cleaning and sorting. We've been working in our garage, which in the past has been used as a warehouse for antiques and fix-it projects to get ready to sell. We're finally cleaning it out and it really feels great!! Hope you're doing good and thank you again for all your sweet words about the cover artwork ~ xxoo, Dawn

It's lovely to see young people all dressed up to go out. Your son looks very handsome in his suit. It's a great feeling when you get the time to have a big clean up - happy cleaning to you!

Your hubby is a real doll for finding things for you! Good for him. Bet he gets "extra credit" for that!

Cute couple your son and his girlfriend make.

I did not know that those old frames and prints can be taken apart for cleaning. I have several and now I will even if it does destroy the vintage backing. It will do that, right?

Oh Dawn,
Though I don't have any of my own, I know children growing up can be a bittersweet thing. So proud of who they are becoming and at the same time, wanting them to stay those little tykes who come running to you with their boo-boos. They look excited and proud all dressed up. You did well.
And tell Hubby thanks for the beautiful image.

Your son is so good looking, and they made a cute couple. These are the fun things we get to be apart of with our kids and then the Grandkids, so special.
Your husband has a gift for finding you things. So beautiful and you share it so well. I can't think of not looking at your blog. I would miss you so much, it is a treat, a gift, and yes uplifting.
Happy hunting...Mary

Love the photo! I'm so glad your son and his date had fun. They grow up so fast! I can't believe the youngest of mine posed for a picture like this 6 years ago!
