Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

My Little Lost Boy

This little boy just arrived.  No frame.  Standard size.  Probably 1850's. 

Starched detachable white collar.





This one shows the color the best.  He is not faded.  You can see he had a frame with an oval center at one time.

  1. Your little boy is adorable, I am so sorry he got separated from his original frame.Anyway he wasn't destroyed over the years.
    I haven't seen many little boy paintings
