Vintage Black Friday-Silhouettes

Greetings from Applejack Lane!  Today is the first Friday of the month;  therefore, it must be Vintage Black Friday.  Today, I am sharing a pair of silhouette pictures of my husband made sixty years ago. I think that probably qualifies him and the pictures as vintage.
Thanks for stopping in.  Please join The French Cupboard for more VBF fun.

I just love these, my mom had mine done when I was about 4 years old. I would love to learn the techniques. They are really sweet!

I love silhouette pictures and it is so special that they are of your husband. I have collected a few silhouette prints and they are so fun to incorporate in vignettes. Thanks for sharing.

I just love silohettes... I had some done of both my girls when they were 1 and 3. i have them placed on my mantel in my bedroom. I sure hope you have some plans for a great weekend.

Those are really cool. I used to want to learn that art. (I know it's just cutting paper but I believe it's much more than that)

God Bless

I adore silhouettes. I know a few years ago I cut out a magazine article about how to make them, I think it might have been Country Living. I think it may be time to revisit that idea. Thanks for sharing. Actually thank your husband.
