Vintage inspiration

I found this vintage picture on the internet, and I just had to blog about it.  I think it is so hauntingly beautiful.  Why does a vintage picture evoke such emotion and inspiration.  This picture makes me wonder what kind of life this little girl must have had, or where she was from.  How old is she?  What was she thinking?
Does anyone else do this when they look at vintage pictures or am I just weird...


  1. your not weird! That is a darling picture. They hold another lifetime in them. Vintage pictures show a gentler life than the one we lead now. In some ways I envy them.

  2. Oh Dessa Rae, I share some of the same thoughts. I love the old photographs some you look at the people seem stuffy and then there are others where it gives you the thought of innocence about the subject. Looking this particular photograph the little girl just look so pure.
    Peace and Blessings

  3. Wish i was living in that time sometimes! I also wonder what this girl is thinking, is she sad and only smiling for the picture?....Or a very happy rich girl?...

  4. Beautiful photo of a child Dessa Rae!
    I love it.
    Thank you for sharing
