These are wonderful! I'll be on the lookout for them now :)

Musings from Kim K.

What a lovely collection. I say that on every collection post, but I just adore the grouping and how you have displayed on your wall.


Wow...what an amazing collection! Love the stories that go along with with them too. That makes them even more special.I remember we used to do those in school. Wish I still had mine.
I'm still trying to come up with a challenge for you!
Thanks for sharing :-)


Sweet. I think I'll try doing some of these the next time the granddaughter comes over for an "art class".
Yours looks great displayed in a group.


I have always loved silhouettes but don't have a one. Your collection is very sweet.


This is a beautiful collection. I adore the reverse-painted glass. It is hard to imagine an 11-year old made the one with the swing. That little girl was a born crafter. Makes you wonder what became of the people who made them and what else they made, doesn't it!


I have my hubby's from his childhood too and I hang it proudly in our bedroom. Thanks for sharing!


I have a small collection of these as well...There is something very innocent in a black and white/ cream print. Yours look amazing going down the stairs. I love that you hang people you don't know in your home...like the beauty queen from the school...Somebody knew them! Its good karma right? Smiles...good call Marci...Renee


Thanks for showing your awesome collection of silhouettes Laurie! I love how most of them are children, they are so sweet. My collection is small, but your right it is easy to add to. Thanks for the mention of my new blog, it should be fun if I can figure out all the little tricks :)


I love this collection! How sweet. I use to make silhouettes of my kindergarten kids for gifts at Mother's Day but I haven't done this for several years. I think you have inspired me to start them up again. I will now be on the lookout for silhouettes. Thanks for the peek.


I'd have never thought about collecting these (or to ask if you did!) You have some really wonderful ones here, and I love how you have them all displayed together.


I am re-doing our bedroom and your post reminded me that in the attic I have two silhouettes that would be perfect for what I have in mind.


One Gal's Trash

So pretty! The children in the one that has the baby in the high chair are having a sibling fight...you can just tell. I think I remember the musical ones from a library book I found for you on Whidbey Island. It was in the "Reject" pile at the local library. Can you imagine? Fun to see you today!

Love the one with the child in highchair and the other child standing in front of highchair with what looks like a doll baby. You mentioned that you would like to know what they were saying...I think it went like this...Uh O' you dropped your dolly, wait, I get it for you!
