Flappers Amongst Flowers

Kudos to Sally Jane Vintage for discovering that the National Geographic photos I had previously reblogged were taken by Clifton R. Adams.  I always like to learn of "new" photogs from the 20s and 30s.  Double kudos to her for reblogging a few more, some of which I'm now reposting here (note to self: must try to recreate similar once apple and cherry blossoms burst forth on local trees in the next while).  Happy Friday, everyone, and don't forget: my blog giveaway closes on Sunday and winner will be drawn on Monday!

I wanted to say that I love your shop. I have yet to buy anything, but I always look because you have beautiful pieces and they are priced at the prices I think vintage should be priced at. Thank you!

Ooo, they are lovely photos- they remind me of photos that I have of my great grandmother- even though mine are in b&w, but the hats and stockings are the same!

That second one is absolutely astounding. I love how it looks like you're floating through water instead of beautiful blue flowers :)

Kim Bombshell: THANK YOU ever so much for your kind words. This really means a lot!!

lovelypinup: oh, just to clarify: that's not me! These are 1920s photos taken by Clifton R. Adams. Hope to mimick them, though....if the flowers ever bloom like this around here!

These photos are just amazing! I found lots of wedding photographs from the 50's in my mum's wardrobe, I'm hoping a hunt in my nana's house will produce earlier ones.
