Hello Fellow Sepians, I thought I would submit this picture taken from the Our Miramichi Heritage Photo site.  It depicts three girls around our park fountain in what was known as Newcastle, around the turn of the century.   We have amalgamated into a city called Miramichi since early 1990's.

SepiaSaturday November 7, 2015

This time around, I thought I would submit this picture I took while visiting my son, his wife and little grand daughter on Prince Edward Island.  I had an old camera I was fooling around with and snapped a few pictures, this was originally two pictures, one of the three of them, and one of me and the little one.  It somehow got meshed all into one!

Although I submitted my next picture before for another theme, I thought I would submit it again, this is a picture of my Dad in his father's old car, and I do believe that little spirit at the foreground is my brother, Maurice when he was just a little tyke.  Looks kind of spooky........

For more "exposure", go visit  www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com      Have a great weekend everyone!!

SepiaSaturday, October 31, 2015

This week, I looked and looked and could not find a woman looking at a mirror or a rough looking dude with a chapeau.  So I decided I would go for the hairstyle, when in doubt, go with the hairstyle I say.....

This photo was found in between the walls at my Mother's Inn a few years ago.  They were renovating and came across it.  We don't know who she is so we dubbed her "The Mystery Lady".  She is very beautiful and she might have been looking at a mirror, who knows?  I will always wonder why this beautiful picture was hidden in between the walls........If walls could talk......

Then in the spirit of Halloween, I thought I would throw in some pictures of me in costumes through the years.  Miss Piggy and the French Maid had the most fun, think I will go out again this Halloween and kick up my heels.  I have to admit though, the last time I went out as Miss Piggy, it was during the Swine Flu epidemic, and I didn't get many dances, men must have been scared of catching the swine flu or maybe they were scared of Kermit the Frog......

This, believe or not was not a wig, it was my very own hair, wish I had the color back, this was in the year 2000, not that long ago.....

Hoping you stop over to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com  to see many more haunting pictures, funny pictures, old pictures, oh well, I'm sure you get the drift.......Happy Halloween to those who partake in that silly stuff......

I looked at the prompt picture and went searching for something to submit.  I found these three pictures, hope they fill the space.

Now, my Mother and Father, my two brothers and me, (I was definitely not looking left.  This was around 1952 or 1953.  A few years later, Mom and Dad were to have 3 more children, 2 girls and 1 boy, all within 3 years!!!

----my daughter and her husband, they are looking to the left as were the ones in the prompt picture! 
 Last but not least, my beautiful daughter and her handsome husband, they are definitely looking left as are the ones in the prompt picture!!

For more shadows, children, left looking, clocks, sailor suits, teddy bears, five in a picture, etc. go visit www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

I looked high and low, and could not find a photo that closely resembled the expressions on those poor unhappy face that was the prompt for this week, so came up with these:

These are my three Great Aunts, Sarah, Sophie, and Roseanne.  When my Mother opened her house as an inn a few years back, she named the 3 rooms after these find looking ladies.  When my mother retired and sold the Inn, the new owners kept the name on the doors.

In keeping with the "three in a picture", I am presenting this one of the Grandmother, Marie, her sister, Marguerite and her husband, Maurice, who I think was an avid photographer.  These two ladies are sisters to the three ladies in the picture above.  These sisters, my great aunts were very fashionable dressers!!

 I must have dipped into my great aunts and my grandmother's genes, I like to dress up too!  Here I am pictured going to a Victorian Tea with an elderly neighbor of mine, she loved to dress up too!!

For many more pictures go to  www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com   Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all those who celebrate it in the Sepian world!!

Getting ready to retire, November, 2015

I have decided to retire, well, semi retire in November of this year.  I am retiring from the Real Estate business, but thought I would start a little sewing business at home.  I received my new business cards this week, now I have to distribute them so I can build a little clientele before I actually retire.  It will give me something to do, but still regulate when I want time off to do other things, like joining people for tea, traveling, etc.  Wish me luck!!!!

SepiaSaturday, April 25, 2015

There were several themes one could pick up on, I went with hairdos: some were mine, some were others, but I'm sure we all thought we were the cat's meow at the time.......

I will start with my beautiful Mom, I can still remember her at her vanity combing out her hair, I thought her so beautiful, she is still good looking at 85!  I hope I carry her gene. (That's me with the short bob hairstyle).

A mother of a friend, not sure of the date.

Above is my pretty stern looking great grandmother with her hair in a very tight bun!

My lovely great Aunt Marguerite around the '20's.

My best friend and I had just stepped out of the beauty salon in early 1960's, can't you tell?  My hair was backcombed and teased to within an inch of its life!!!  But we thought we were adorable!!  The first of many "selfies".

Later on, I thought a perm was in order, so here I am with my son, David, and my daughter, Christina around 1975.  It was all the rave, an Afro perm!!

Last, but not least, my Dad donned a wig for this shot with my sister, Dianne and me in early 1970's.

Well, I hope you enjoyed a walk down hairdo memory lane with me, for more hairy scary photos, go to  www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com, bye for now.  Rosie

Staying cool, calm, and collected........

I took this picture with my old camera (non digital) so it may not be as sharp as it should be.  I trie to incorporate all the things I like, tea, calligraphy, compote dish, music, etc.  To tie in with the theme, I have a music book open with musical notes, I think it may be Loch Lomond.

I really like the theme picture, if you would like to see it to, follow the link to:

Have a great weekend sepia peeps!  Rosie.

For Sepia Saturday, February 28, 2015

These people were marching to save the Air Base in Chatham, NB.  The base employed some civilians, plus it was a boost to the economy of the Miramichi.  This march took place in July, 1982.  This was also on the day that Gilles Villeneuve died in a crash in the Grand Prix race.  I found this photo on the site Our Miramichi Heritage Photos.  We are having a big Gathering this summer to celebrate our heritage, expecting thousands to attend, locals and those that used to be locals will all be there!  You can take the person out of the Miramichi, but you can't take the Miramichi out of the person!!!

For further demonstration, or people in a gathering, go to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  I looked around and found this couple kissing (from the Our Miramichi Heritage Photos) and found it rather cool as it seems to be triple exposed!

Then I went searching in my albums for something red for Valentine's Day.  I came across me in a red dress, (1988).

This is my little "sweetheart" grand daughter, Katie Rose with a red flower in her hair.
 Of course, I had to include The Red Shoes, I started the dance at the Moulin Rouge in Paris with this shoes on in October, 2012!  A young lad from the South of USA and I started the dance and then the floor filled up with dancers, I guess they were just waiting for someone to start!!!!

I will finish off with a red rose from the garden after a rain last August.

Well, that's all I could come up with, a couple kissing, a red dress, a red flower in my Katie Rose's hair, shoes that started the dance at Moulin Rouge in Paris (with a handsome lad) and a red rose with a bud. 

For more loving pictures, make sure to go to www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com and beware of that Cupid Lad and his arrows.....

Seawind Jewelley shop in Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada.

When I saw this week's prompt in SepiaSaturday, I thought about the visit to Grand Manan Island, a small island south of New Brunswick, Canada.

I stopped off at a little shop called Seawind that was surrounded by a lovely and thriving garden, I was able to converse with the lady who made beautiful jewellery in this little shop.

Hope you like the pictures as  much as I enjoyed visiting that little country shop that overlooked the hundreds of blooms in the garden, how good is that.

 Even a dragonfly was enjoying her working, it stuck around long enough for me to take a couple of photos.

For more intriguing pictures of women at work and play, go to sepiasaturday.blogspot.com

Have a great weekend, may you be enjoying your season whatever it may be at this time of the year, here, it is Winter, and we have plenty of snow to prove it this year!!!!
