Funny Instant Ancestor - Charlie

Meet Charlie...the first funny "Instant Ancestor" of mine you'll meet! (For those of you who don't know, an instant ancestor is just an old, cool photo you got somewhere like a flea market, that's no relation to you. You basically rescue these long-forgotten pictures of people for fun, crafts, decorating, feel sorry for them, etc. I got my little collection by choosing who made me smile in a funny way when I saw them. This was my first, and he made me laugh literally out loud. The flea market guy thought I was nuts.)

Charlie is a bit of a rabble-rouser! He likes to round up his friends for a game of poker and smoking cigars. He'll flirt with all the pretty girls, but he's really got his eyes on Clara, a nice & respectable girl who won't give him the time of day. Charlie is good at heart, but always has a mischeivous look in his eye. Oh, that Charlie!

Have a fantastic Saturday, everyone! I know I will--I'm headed off to the flea market!
