Old Family Photos

It's finally Friday! Yippee! I'm feeling much, much better and ready to rock and roll!
Maybe next week I'll have some art or decorating to show you...;)
But first let me introduce you to some women in my family.
This is my mother...

This was her mother...(my grandmother)And this was her mother...(my great-grandmother)

They are all beautiful, wouldn't you agree?
There is something about old photos that makes me kind of weak in the knees. My family (on both sides) were really great about taking lots and lots of pictures. I love them all.


Marie over here is having an heirloom party today. If you've never visited her blog, take a gander. Marie is a bloggy friend you'll want to make. She always leaves super sweet comments and she's having a give-away. Let me know if you post any old photos...


Now I'm off to actually CREATE and get my fall decorations out of the attic! Yay! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
(I'll fill you in on the phone situation soon. Let's just say, the rice was not nice.:)

These photos are just wonderful! I can just see some kind of altered art collage using all of them. Beautiful women, you included!

I love old family photos. We have a huge box that belonged to my MIL that we still need to go through. My plan is to scan all of them onto the computer to share with everyone in the family. Thanks for sharing yours.

It's as though their eyes are following you back into the real world sometimes for me. Photos from long ago.

Hello Chrissie Grace - lovin' those beautiful old photos! Actually, I love photos of any kind but especially old ones. There's just something fabulous about looking at their faces and wondering about their past.

Thank you for joining me for the party!
