Ca. 1861




Here are some close-up images. All of these pictures were scanned from a volume of Godey's fashions. The framed collage is 21 in. long by 17 in. wide. Would love to see the work of some of the other collagers in cyberspace.

Ihanna,
I'm so happy your mom has quit smoking! My mother hasn't and she is suffering for it...she's 77 with and oxygen tank constantly, shakes so badly she can barely hold a spoon and only lives to get on her scooter to go outside for a smoke. What a sad way to life out the end of her life. She has been in assisted living for many years, but now has to have constant care and lives with my sister. Please tell your mother congradulations! Jean
