Get to know Cathi!
I am Cathi Basler and have had the privilege of being able to do something I love to support my children in college. I sell old photos on ebay and my store's name is Chatham Ho Treasures. It is named after my great great grandfather whose wife I was named after. Throughout my life,I have collected and loved old photos. I have always just loved the beauty of photography and images from long ago. Sometimes it might be a look, the way the light hits a person, or the clothing that is worn, or even the subject matter, but each treasure I try to list has an element of beauty from days gone by. What I find unique about old photos is that sometimes it is the image that strikes you and it is simply a piece of art. Then other times, you are drawn to wonder what these people were like, how did they live and what lessons did they learn, and you find that they almost become a distant relative. But I guess the most important thing to me about old photos are that they reflect God's art, looking at faces and images of people that are each completely one of a kind and unique and never to be seen exactly the same again. It is through looking at things like this, that helps us be grateful for those that came before us, and hopefully by learning from them, we make the world just a little bit better.
This is the winter weather I was talking about in my email
