I ended up finding an unadvertised garage sale! The woman told me that she had put it in the paper 2 other times and was rained out both times. She said she was not paying for another ad. I got lots of really cool stuff. This is the one that I really fell in love with.
Isn't she sweet?!?!?!?!
There are not any hinges holding this together. It fits together like a tin. When I opened it I found this on the back of the photo. I am sorry I could not get a really good pic of it. It says:
Esme Collings, Ltd. Then it has 4 separate locations in England listed. I am assuming that they are photography studios. It is also numbered 3708A in pencil.
The photo and glass must have needed some padding to keep it in tight. Behind the photo are cut outs. One of the ads is for mating chicks. *snorts* Another says *But first, a desperate struggle must be won. And the farmer, the factory worker and the man in uniform are working together in our fight for America's particular brand of freedom*. The other is an ad for worm capsules for your livestock. HA!
Wanna know how much she was?? 50 cents. For reals....she cost me 50 cents.
Why do I like her? For the life of me I do not know but I do. I wonder what her story was....
I am going to keep this as is. I am not going to alter the photo or the frame at all.
For now she is going to hang out at my house.
What do you think her name was?
sometimes buys things because they speak her.....
