George and Betty

A nosy fascination into other people's lives makes buying old photographs a complusion.
A single moment, forever frozen in time.
This week I've listed some batches of photos for sale on my eBay auctions.

Clearing out a cupboard this afternoon unearthed Ted's treasured old family album, and we spent a nostalgic couple of hours looking at childhood pictures.
I particularly love this wartime photo of his parents...Bet's suit is stunning- she looks like a movie star!

What a lovely blog! You've found some wonderful things. Funnily enough Mr Kitsch just bought a bunch of old photos yesterday, and they've started his imagination whirring.
Thanks for visiting my blog!

Everyone seemed to look like a movie star back then. I love looking at old b+w photos. I particularly like the one on your blog header. xx

I love old photographs too and use them a lot when I am in one of my creative moods, especially like to use them on ATC's and altered books. I just love making up imaginary worlds for the people in them to inhabit. I have actually bought some from you in the past.
Love the mother-in-laws suit they both look so smart and well turned out

Beautifully turned out! Haven't we seen photos of Wallis Simpson in a suit like that?
