A Feather in Her Cap

The theme at Sunday Postcard Art is HATS.  This vintage photo is either someone related to me somehow or a friend of someone related to me.  When I came across it in the family photos, I thought the long narrow shape was unusual and that it would be a fun photo to play with.  The hat doesn't seem all that clear, but it's there and it has a feather on it.  Actually, two feathers.  So I couldn't resist pointing it out and creating a collage with the photo.  She's quite proud of her accomplishment...whatever it may have been.


I'm happy to send this postcard off to someone who would like to find it in their mail.  Speak up.

Good Mail Day!

You've been too generous to me with your cards so I'll pass on asking, but wanted to say how much I really enjoy this one. Old photos really speak to me and I love the serene look Miss has on her face. Cute caption, too.

I wonder who she was and what she would have thought of her photo being shown internationally. There's something about old photographs - a stillness, and of course they did have to be still for the photograph to be clear. Nice work, Annie, the rest of the postcard echoes the vintage quietness.

Your long ago relative is beautiful and lends herself to your wonderful creative muse. And all from a simple hat and feather...

I have lots of those old photos and love the idea of making them into a postcard. It's beautiful!

The lady with the hat looks as if she knows her own mind and is almost challenging
The big world out there. The heart finishes the whole piece. Super work Anne
