There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends.
I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.

an update February 26th

I hope your week has been a good one for you.

I have been busy organizing my art room.
Do you ever get over whelmed by all the stuff?
I love to collect vintage lace, postcards, and
cabinet cards.  In the process of
organizing, I found some beautiful
cabinet cards I have purchased
over the past few years.  I scanned two
of them for you to use in your
art work.


Yes, these are from MY collection!
Last year I did a Google search for vintage
roses and found some images on Flickr.
I did a post on vintage rose postcards I had
scanned to share and also shared a photo I
found on Flickr, and did not state the 
photo was mine.  Well, this week I was
accused of "stealing" the photo.
I can't remember the Flickr account name
and never have been to the artist's
website or blog...really
do not know this person.
I wasn't too happy to say the
least of being accused of
stealing another person's photo. 

I spoke with the photographer
on Saturday.  We discussed my
Google search "vintage rose
postcards".  I could not remember
the link since it was a while back.

I share my vintage images
for your art work.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Until next time...

These are so sweet and thank you for sharing.
So sorry you had trouble. I often wonder if some of these sites that share on a daily basis really know where the original came from. It must take hours of searching to know for sure.
Have a nice weekend. Hugs

Hi Sharon, I really like your images that you are sharing. Sometimes people try to make you think that a picture is theirs when in reality it is not. I learned that the hard way. I don't know why people are like that. I hope you are doing o.k. Hubby has been having some problems so I don't get to do everything I want. Take care Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

Oh Sharon, I am so sorry to hear you had to go through being accused of something like that. You are always so sweet to share, I can't imagine anyone thinking that of you. Since I have joined Pinterest, I have wondered if something I have pinned would upset anyone. Love the way your blog looks and your header is so pretty.

HI Sharon,
Please stay safe with all the storms around. I am hurt that anyone would be unkind to you. You are such a caring, loving person, who shares so much with others. .....hugs...m....
