I can't remember where I found this cute little French perfume bottle. It's only about one inch high, black glass inside the ornate metal cover. I don't know how old it is but the perfume fragrance inside is still strong. It has a turquoise colored bead on top of the lid and there is a chain of beads the same color that I think were attached at one time.

This old brooch was in mama's button jar as long as I can remember. I don't know where she got it or what it is made of but the metal surrounding the floral piece looks homemade. So many things I wish I had asked her about.

This cameo came from my aunt Pauline. I have no idea where it came from but it looks quite old. The metal appears to be gold.

This is my paternal great grandparents, Andrew and Lovina Ecalbarger in front, my grandma Lucy in back left, then uncle Sam and aunts Effie and Thelma. I think this was taken around 1915.

My maternal grandma Lillie Fitzpatrick and grandpa Percy Ferris probably taken in the 1930's. He was an
 engineer and she was the warmest, sweetest most loving lady ever.

 Here I am in 1940 with grandpa Percy Ferris. He died in 1943 so I don't remember much about him except he was warm and smelled like tobacco and Beeman's chewing gum.
I found this button in my front yard while digging another flower garden. Maybe it's a badge. It has a threaded post on back.  Strangely it wasn't rusted or eroded. The back has a ciricle with cw1812 inside. I love finding treasures like this when I'm out digging! 

A sunset seems the right way to end this post. Don't you just love how every sunset is original?
God bless you and all your loved ones.

Hidey ho,
My name is Scott Ecelberger. While doing a little genealogy I discovered your photo of Andrew Ecalbarger who is my Great-Great-Grandfather's Brother (Levi Ecelbarger). I guess that makes him my G-G-Grand-Uncle.
I just wanted to thank you for posting it and that I will be adding it to my collection of family photos.
