Free Vintage Clip Art - Photos of Three Sisters

The striped-socks gals are non-identical twins.

I'm back!  I've missed my blogs, but the spring and Easter season is a busy time for Catnip Studio. I haven't had time to create any new digital art, but here are a series from my family photos of three sisters (my grandmother, and great aunts). All were born before 1920 and are deceased. The two oldest were non-identical twins. Be sure to right click to get the best image size.  I'll be posting some lovely studio portraits of these ladies in the future.

The twins are center and on your left.

The twins are center and on your left. Satin capes, tassels, and glittery crowns abound! They were Job's Daughters, I think.
I'll check with my mom, and correct, if necessary.

  10. A friend sent me the link to your site...great vintage images...many thanks! And yes, those girls are Job's Daughters...I was one of them for a couple years, but didn't fit in, so I left...or maybe they asked me to leave! I just couldn't take it seriously dressed like THAT!

  12. Great photos! and you are right about those being Jobs daughters...like "Kitten" (who posted before me) I was one, also for only a short while - too much of a nonconformist to stay despite of the fun of wearing the costume!

  18. I posted the picture of your grandmother and twin cousins on my blog today in honor of Pink for breast cancer awareness and also for Pink Sat. (I pinked them up a bit.) You can find them here if you are interested.

  19. Hi, I found your site via google images. May I suggest forwarding the photo of the 3 sisters in capes and crowns to our International Center in Papillion, Nebraska (www.iojd.org)? Our Job's Daughters Museum is located at our headquarters there, and I'm sure the curator would love a piece of history, if you knew what Bethel they were in and what year. Even if you don't know all of that information.. you could submit their names and state they lived in and it can be researched. That regalia they are wearing in the photo is completely ORIGINAL. The young lady in the center was Honored Queen (presiding officer) and behind her are the Senior Princess and Junior Princess. Your grandmother and great aunts are part of a rich history for many young ladies in the world. What an awesome photo!
