Vintage Thursday Thingie: A Vintage Boyhood

This week I thought I'd share my best vintage treasure....or at least, some pictures from his vintage boyhood!






A Big Boy Haircut! This photo was printed as a postcard! A vintage postcard!




This is the back..lucky for us, his Mom hadn't sent out all the cards! This studio portrait/postcard was taken by Makine's Studio, Atlantic City.






A boy and his dog...well, not quite. Its the neighbor's dog, beloved Blacky. (Poor guy couldn't have a dog because of family allergies... still can't!)






Urkel?







Peter Parker?








No, Dan (and his Mom, Lea).

Happy Birthday Hubby!

Great photos. Happy Birthday by the way!!

I have a rose bush that looks just like the one in one of your photos, I just told my husband I was going to dig it up, it looked funny....now, I guess I will show him it looks vintage!!
He will just roll his eyes at that one.

Have a great VTT!!

Oh...and by the way....my class today was STRESSFUL....one lady quit...no joke. But the answer to the stress is to buy a $3000.00 sewing machine...that easy!

Have a great VTT!
