Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

In this LO I chalked aroound a replica of an old postcard that a friend of mine sent me. The chalking made it  look even older than it already looked. Also, distressed pp, crackle painted the corrugated cardboard, inked the title, flowers and clock face. Also crackle painted the little flourishes. Used an old dictionary page, punched it and placed it under the brown upholstry trim. Couldn't resist the pp by K & Co because of the turn of the century hats.

The people in the photo are my grandmother (far left), and her brothers and sisters. Also seen in the photo are two neighbors who were good friends. The photo was taken circa 1903 and everyone was smiling....that's pretty rare for that era......what will those young people think of next?!!!!!
