Community Photo Challenge


This week's challenge is AGED.  So find something that shows age or take an image & make it vintage or aged. 

Post your challenge entry on your blog, come back here & leave your link in the comment area on either the FUN or JUDGED category.

Please follow the basic guidelines & keep in mind the minor change.


Ok, sick to death of the marble yet, LOL.   This is a jar of my FIL's old marbles from the 30's 40's.   I antiqued them and added a antique frame.  Looks pretty cool if I may say so myself.  And I did take this photo a few minutes ago.  Ta DA!

Wow this is great! Well done Julie. If you get a chance, can you show us the antique marbles in color? Are they different colors like they do now?

They're great Julie, I used to have a collection of different coloured marbles. I remember the old ones were made of marble and not glass. Jeannette xx  http://journals.aol.co.uk/jlocorriere05/Welcometomytravels/entries/2008/03/29/aol-community-photo-challenge./2146

Those marbles are nothing at all like the ones that you have been displaying.  I bet its quite fun to look at the differences between the finished products from that kind of time period.

Your photos have set me off on a new project. I used to love marbles and had some old ones given to me in the early 60's. Sadly I don't have them any more but after seeing your photos, I've started buying Antique and Vintage marbles from Ebay.

I want Isabella, my 22 month old grandaughter to appreciate all sorts of things from an early age. We played with some this morning, she thought they were "Wow!!"
