vintage photos

at a family reunion in july, i was thrilled to see what one of my cousins had designed for our family auction! she took old family photos and made these wonderful t-shirts (and the cotton was soft and lovely, too - not the scratchy stuff). the only sad thing was that she was ill the day of the reunion - and missed out on all the oohs and ahhs that her handiwork elicited...

this is the shirt that came home with me - the little girl in the middle, holding her bottle, is my mother:) very special indeed!

















everyone loves old family photos, i think...even the non-junkers amongst us, judging by the prices these t-shirts brought! all for the family cause, of course:) i wonder if i'll see vintage photos on t-shirts at the next junk sale i attend? are they already out there? hmmmm....
