1860's Style...

We headed out to Sabathday Shaker Village this afternoon to get our picture taken by a local  business who specializes in tintype photographs. I wore the dress I made for the church Christmas fair and Asher wore an antique Christening gown that I bought ages ago.  I should have fixed my hair in a historic style,( will have to do that next time), but I'm still pleased with how it came out.   We want to get a family portrait done as soon as I get an outfit made for everyone. 
If you are local and want a picture done(you don't have to go historic dress like I did), check out  Cole Caswell at

Have a great weekend,



  1. Oh Tiff, you look just perfect! Just think of that in a frame...... *swoon*!

  2. Looks just like the 1860's. We have a similar place near us that does this. I had taken my kids to get their picture done..never thought as a family though. Yours looks good! Janice

  3. I use tintype in my edits alot, I love the look of it! Love yours too!

  4. Oh my the picture looks like really from way back then! What a great idea and will be so anxious to see the entire family in a photo like this.
