"we look like little girls from long ago"

That's what Emma said when I showed her the picture I took of them for my exposaroonie entry this week. Oh, how I love this week's challenge: vintage. It was so much fun to dress my girls up in their best vintage-style outfits; that dress Annabelle is wearing actually IS vintage-- it was my mother-in-law's when she was a little girl! And look at their oh-so-serious faces. They posed like little pros from the days of yore.

I am so excited to see all the other vintage entries. On Friday, they will all be up, and then you can go check them out too! Don't forget to vote for your favorite.

If you have not already done so, please don't forget to comment and enter my 100th-post giveaway! Today and tomorrow are your last days to do so, and then comes the big reveal of what two of you wonderful people have won. Hooray!

Wow, they really do look like little girls from the 30's or 40's. That's awesome how you captured it!

Ok this cracks me up because "back then" they didn't smile in their pictures. Too cute!!!

PS, I know it's way too late and you probably can't..but we have 2 extra American Idol tickets for Fresno tomorrow night :/ Free too!!!

Aww! I love that Emma said "we look like little girls from long ago" -- that's so cute how she phrased it! And your photo is outstanding! I love it! The girls look perfect with their dresses, the piano and the teddy bear! Oh, and those somber expressions! Great job!!

Love it. I have the best idea for this. I just hope it actually turns out the way I'm hoping. I really like this week's challenge. The vintage picture taking will have to wait until tomorrow though. I ran out of time and energy today.

Totally voted for you. What a fabulous photo! I just about died when I saw it. I want a couple little girls to dress up. :) It's so perfect, too, how their faces are all serious. Completely fitting for the vintage theme!

Great job! I'm hoping you win!
