Vintage Beach

For my vintage challenge at Texture Tuesday today I dug out this advertisement from a turn of the last century publication.  I don't know what magazine I got it out of, probably Good Housekeeping.  When I went to the antique shows more there was always a wonder of art awaiting discovery inside of these old publications and occasionally I would find something amazing like this Hinds hand cream ad.

Isn't this the nicest art in this ad.  Love the woman's face and  the sailor suits.

Beach and vintage is a wonderful combo.  One of my favorite.
All photos edited with a layer of texture from Kim Klassen called pourvous.
I will join Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen Cafe.
Go and visit to view some wonderful photography.
