celebrating Addie's day

Tonight we spent the evening making and wrapping 35 or so heart-shaped rice crispy treats to hand out to Addie's classmates for Valentine's Day tomorrow. Nearly eight years ago Addie joined our family...traveling from a "little" coastal town in the Fujian Province of China. They tell us she was born on Valentine's Day. To us, this holiday will forever be Addie's Day.

shorpy finds: Merchants' Dispatch Transportation Co.

Blacksmith shop, Merchants' Dispatch Transportation Co. - (circa 1904)

What's not to love about this snapshot? Those bricks. Those mustaches. The hand-forged metalwork. Sigh. Have I mentioned how much I respect artisan work? If you click on the image you can zoom in on all the gorgeous details. Cheers!
