Cee’s Black & White Challenge: 50 years or older

I know, I know, this should be all about me. Well, it’s not! We were downtown recently for the monthly Cruz-n-Car show and I actually have quite a few “over 50” pictures. But I’ve chosen these (and they’re not cars!!).

This first picture is obviously an old tractor, date unknown. Behind it sits the object I really wanted to photograph but was unable.  It is a 1907 citrus sprayer.

This next photo is the hood ornament on a 1938 Chevrolet. The car had a beautiful pearly white paint job. The hood ornament is kind of plain compared to some ornaments, I think.

Draped Lady – Fragile and Vintage!

There are two challenges this week that I felt that my post would fit. So I just had to do it this way!

The first challenge is Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote — Fragile.   My mother always had the most beautiful items in her home when I was growing up. This piece was always one of my favorites. I’m sure that she was always so nervous that I was going to break some of her items because I was fascinated by them. I am so happy that I didn’t break it because now it’s mine! The Draped Lady flower frog was produced by Cambridge Glass in the 1920s and 1930s.

Guard your fragile life carefully.  Only God can shape a flower, but any foolish child can pull it to pieces.
