Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

This is my freebie for this Friday!  This picture is a real treasurer.  Imagine the rough road she had in her life!  Not only was she a woman....she was an odd looking gal.  It almost looks like she has a leather jacket on.  Maybe she was a wild woman from the old west!
This would be great on an altered art project.  You could make her into a card with a caption:
 "It's all fun and games until the whiskey runs out!".... or
"Housework makes me ugly".
"She was one frozen entree from a nervous breakdown".
"She would show him naughty!".
I could go on forever!! I love funny quotes.  Anyway...I hope she had a good life and changed the world in some small way. 
Try to keep cozy...winter is coming!  It snowed here last night!


  1. It's interesting that in photos from that era no one is smiling - I often wondered why. Her dress does look like leather but it's likely that heavy fabric the name of which eludes me just now :) Your sense of humour is showing, lol. I love your ideas for the card.

  2. Hi Kate, I think you are right that she is wearing a different fabric...seems like it has a shine to it. I think no one is smiling in the old days because they either had bad teeth (lol) or everyday was so hard that there was little to smile about.
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  3. I think she qualifies for a makeover!

  4. Love vintage images, told my DH I would have liked to live in those days because of the neat dresses the women wore, but I couldn't do with out my indoor Potty & A/C.


  5. Nope she is saying--"I hate boys"!!!!
    Hugs, Di and miss gracie
