Beth over at Milliande is hosting a "Mothers" ATC Swap. I'm guessing most of the participants will be using personal pictures of their mothers...for me, that just seems so intrusive right now. Check back with me in a few years and I'm sure I'll feel differently...
I feel very guarded and protective over my mother these days...even just pictures of her.

I guess I should be proud to show off pictures of my mom...and I am, I just don't know how I feel about someone owning a picture of her. Weird.
For the sake of this post, these are obviously not pictures of me and my mom or I'd really be aging gracefully! I do however, have a soft spot for vintage photos and postcards so it was easy to find some images that fit this prompt.
