My wall of unknown. These are pictures of people I don't even know found in auction boxes, given to me, found at thrift stores, etc. I just thought they needed a home so they are now my unknown family. I love looking at the pictures and making up stories about their lives. Today our cold weather has come in. We didn't get snow but several counties around us did. I have a nice fire going with the tea kettle on. I am going to clean the book shelves today. I need to sort out and get rid of some books as they are overtaking the house. I love books and hate to part with any but will keep my favorites and pass the others on to friends, family and even sell some of the how to's on ebay. Enjoy your day, enjoy your home, enjoy your family and friends and then enjoy a cup of tea and a good book! Leave you with my scripture reading and thought for the day:
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body. Colossians 3:15
Peace with God!! It expresses so much. Peace is greater than joy, or comfort, or rest.

I think that is so cute that you have given these people a home on your wall. When I go to antique shops and see these pictures I always feel sad that they are not with the family and being appreciated. I had no idea that there were lovely people out there like you giving them their own wall.

Enjoy your weekend.

Peggy, I love your pictures! We have a portrait of an elderly lady we bought at an auction for $1.00. A friend made us a nice oak frame for her. I wondor what her life was like. I think its great that you have this special collection. Thanks for missing me the last few days when I've been so busy helping carry and store things out of the way for the remodeling. I love the verse of scripture at the end of your post. How precious peace is and to have peace with God is what every living soul needs if only they knew it.

Oh Peggy thats such a lovely idea: I tend to shove them into the frames of other pictures and mirrors instead of framing them and giving them the respect they deserve...
I love them, but Mark calls them my "Dead People". Nice...
