Annie, this is for you!

Thank you to everyone who has left compliments on here regarding my Rainbow kittens and Memories wall hanging.  Annie wanted to know the story behind the picture of Ken and I, done up to look like it was taken 100 years ago.  It was taken 33 years ago actually, just before we got married.  We were visiting the Sovereign Hill outdoor museum in Ballarat (you have heaps of these museums in the USA!), and decided to have our photo taken by their photographer, who has a range of costumes that you can try on for your photo.  It came out so well we kidded people that it was our wedding photo!  I thought it was a good one to include on my memory quilt because it fits in with the era of the other genuinely old photos.
