This is hubby and me 10 years ago at a dinner theater on New Years eve. Guess it is time to get a new nice picture of us. He still has the tie and I probably still have that outfit. Question is can I still get into it.

My dad loved cars way to much. Every time my mama turned around my dad had traded in his car. Some where there is a list of some of the cars he owned. Wish I could find that piece of paper.
I am showing these photos here and hoping some car person can identify them for me.
First car is when we lived in Texas . Probably was later 1940's . I can not make out the exact year but think I see a 4?. The license plate is Texas for sure and I think it says Kaiser on the front.
What year and is it a Kaiser?
Second car is parked on a street some where. looks like snow on ground so either Michigan or Minnesota.
I love the buildings and signs in the back ground. Conoco, S& H, Grain belt. I am working on trying to figure out the building on the left towards back sign on building may help me identify where taken
Thanks for any help you can give me.
First photo photographer looks like Hj Kylander Torsas. He appears to be in his late teens. What a sweet serious pose.
Second photo is of a handsome young man probably very early 20's . Photographer is Joh Thorsen Christiania.
Both of these photos are so sweet but sadly have no names on them.

Sadly there is no name on this orphan ophoto. I bought this some years ago here in Minnesota.

carte de visite or visiting card picture of another handsome young man with a mustache, but he also has a very neatly trimmed beard. Dressed in probably his best suit he is posing for us. His suit is a 3 piece with wide collar. If you note his tie is different than yesterday's posting. This one is thin and has a piece of jewelry or button in the middle.

I had these three pieces almost done with wanting to add just some finishing touches. With that done this morning they can be wrapped and boxed up for the show. But first I will give you a peek at them.

Pieces of old beads added to keys.
Pretty faux pearl earring and faux pearls on old key
And an angel to watch over it all. I have less than 2 weeks to finish up. Need to keep getting more done besides finishing up Christmas shopping.
It is so colorful and full of vintage prices for the food offered.

Then I found some old vintage puzzles. Not quite sure what I will do with them yet. May glue them together and put a hanger on back, so they could be hung on a wall.
We have a Santa, Woody Wood Pecker among these old puzzles.
Here is a cute bear family...

I have been working on more pieces to add to the Art/Craft Show in December. Here are some of the items I have finished so far.
The filling is from pages I tore out of vintage books, I used the covers in my other pieces of art.
A proud mama and her baby. Back ground is a page from one of my vintage books.
The above picture is of a pretty little girl posing on a horse with her mama.
Here we have a copy of a black and white picture of a car and the proud owners. Sitting in the front seat is two ladies. I think the young boy is just adorable. At the top is a copy of a vintage drivers license I found some time ago.
I have finished the back by gluing a page from a book and then gluing on a hanger so it can be displayed on a wall if desired. Would also fit just perfect in a display on a table or bookshelf.
These are made with covers from old books, vintage lace, pictures, keys, buttons, jewels and drift wood I collected from the Lake Superior beach this fall.
This will be my first art/craft show in over 15 years so and I am a little nervous and praying for some success.
Thanks for stopping by... Please take a moment looking around and I hope that you will return soon to see what I am up to.... Grace
