Antique Thanksgiving

Have a seat and join us!
Click to enlarge the Stereo Card.
Stereo cards that were made for stereoscope viewers became popular after 1840. Two almost identical pictures were mounted on a stiff cardboard backing so that, when viewed through a stereoscope, a three-dimensional picture could be seen. Value is determined by maker and by subject. You may right click and save it to your photos.

Vintage Pink Pigs

Vintage reproduction piggy bank!
I have a friend that collects interesting pigs. I also have a friend that has one as a pet. I did a search for vintage pigs on Etsy and I found 106 listings. Ebay had 728 listings. Wow! I had no idea pigs are that popular. I'm not a collector. But I did read Charlette's Web as a child and I love the movie Babe. Maybe I should collect pigs they sure are cute. I would love to know what you collect. Join the fun at

Marie Antionette

A little over a year ago I went to France, I think I saw the entire trip from behind my camera. The Chateau ceilings are so beautiful my neck was hurting by the end of the tour.
