Sunday Pics!

19th century twin sisters doing handwork

Okay, this one has no quilts in it, but the handwork they are doing qualifies them for "Sunday Pics" in my book!

They are twin sisters, the photo being taken somewhere around the end of the 19th century.  They are dressed alike, have their hair styled the same, and are working on similar lace projects - maybe collars?

It appears they are married - both wearing rings on their left hands.  This makes me wonder if they decided to stage this photo, going back to the days of their mother dressing them alike and putting identical ribbons in their hair.  They look as if they have wonderful senses of humor, which would lead me to believe this was a fun day for them!

Don't their faces make you want to know them?

A Blessed Sunday to You!
