What's hiding in your attic?

Yes I know it’s been ages. I do my best but life is very full and very exciting. It's those 'dares' you see! No more! Today I'll do a little 'sharing' instead. I’ve discovered a great store on Etsy – Papa’s Vintage Photo Box. Jane uses photographs taken by her Papa in the 50s and early 60s as the basis for her artworks. She enhances the old images, sometimes adding new graphics, sometimes adding color, but never taking away from the atmosphere of her Papa’s original vintage photos. You can take a nostalgic journey through time and place as you wander through her store with more images waiting to be uploaded.

I know many of you are heading into spring in your part of the world; here we’re nearly in autumn. As the first chilly evenings set in I find myself thinking of hibernation, cosiness and comfort. So, in the absence of an open fireplace of my own (airconditioning just doesn’t have the ambience does it) this little gif appealed.
 
And for some other soothing sounds (maybe for snuggling up in bed) here are a couple of videos with sound.
If I don't visit here again before Easter, I wish you a very happy one!  photo PenguinWithBunnyEarsRunningjpg_zps8b2c9eef.gif

Oh! They are wonderful - I particularly like the two bikers and the camel in Egypt! Very inventive. Hope you're keeping warm! Sydney's temps have plummeted!

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly
enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I'd certainly
appreciate it.

Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a
large amount of work? I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my
own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you
have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

Thankyou!

These are wonderful - I am always intrigued by vintage images of foreign lands and thoughts of what it must have been like (pros and cons both) to have visited such places in decades past. These are such a delight, but I think the Egyptian camel is my very favourite - his expression (and upward head tilt) is so great! :)

Big hugs & happiest wishes for May,
♥ Jessica
