Little Nellie

I found this old cabinet photo while at one of my favorite thrift stores.
This particular store has a section of the store they call the "Boutique", where they store any goods they think to be of some value, I guess.
Everything stored behind glass cabinets and cases. But they're not always dead on about that because I sometimes find some really cool vintage goods that are pretty special.... things they've overlooked{hee.hee} ;)

I picked up this photo last night. In the "Boutique."

She's amazing!
Look at that face... those curls... those EYES!
Her name is Nellie.
So beautiful!
I wonder, as I daze at her.
Who was she?
Did she have children? If so, did they or her grandchildren ever know how beautiful she was?
I wish I knew. If they had never seen this photo and it was possible to know,
I'd love to share it, show them what a special little girl she was.

After I left the store, I was rear-ended by some idiot not looking that I was stopped in front of them yielding for cars! So..... I'm OK, just really sore. I'm having some aches and pains here and there and am going to visit the Doctor today.


  1. She is definitely beautiful! Hope you're okay - yikes - feel better soon!!
