Meet Rosa, the Halloween Queen

One of my favorite sites for vintage images is The Graphics Fairy. On Saturday, Karen posted this image of what she called "a spooky old woman." 

And I agree that this woman's image lends itself well to a "witchy" treatment, hence this digital collage. :)

But I was so taken by this woman's face, which, to me, seems incredibly sad, that I immediately wanted to do something fun for her. (And yes, folks, I do realize she's no longer among the living!)

So, I have dubbed this long-forgotten woman Rosa, and Rosa and I are embarking on a year-long journey. For the next year, on every holiday starting with this Halloween, Rosa and I are going have a little photo fun. She gets to dress up for the holidays, and I get to help her do it. I hope that, were she alive, she'd be saying, "Oh, goody!"

So, meet Rosa, my Halloween Queen. You'll be able to track her progress through the year on the sidebar of this blog.
