My Bungalow Gals

Rescued these adorable little girls recently from where they'd been abandoned, in my favorite antique store. They don't look much alike, so I can't decide if they're sisters, cousins or just friends. Time period... perhaps around 1920?

The one on the left looks decidedly unhappy about being all fussed up in a starched dress with bows in her hair. Something tells me her white dress did not remain that way for long!

The season must be early summer... as I can make out what is probably scarlet runner beans beginning to wind their way up vertical strands of twine that have been strung up along the end of the porch.

Anyway, from now on, they will be my adopted ancestors.
I'm hoping to use the image in an upcoming collage.
