If you’ve been following my blog you may recognize these children from an earlier post, Children of Corry, especially grumpy little Vernie and her doll. I adored this cabinet card so much that I purchased an entire photo album to get it. You can imagine how thrilled I was when Val of Colouring the Past selected this photo as one of the limited numbers of free digital colorings she offered in celebration of her blog’s 2nd anniversary!

I love antique and vintage photographs just as they are, even the torn and faded. If I didn’t I surely wouldn’t collect them. But seeing a sepia or black and white image transformed into full color is so much fun and allows me to more easily imagine the sitters as they were in real life. It’s as if they could jump right off the paper!
With every new image Val colorizes and shares on her blog, I continue to be amazed by her skill and talent. I highly recommend following her work. Here’s to many more Colouring the Past anniversary celebrations! Thanks, Val!
