A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Treasure trove!!

These are all pictures of my ancestors! My cousin visited today and brought me two albums full of photos, plus a small heap of cabinet cards (only a few of which are shown above). I have happily spent the afternoon scanning and photocopying what I might be able to use in 'the book' or in the next one (written by the original's son). There were also a number of family photos from my dads life (some of him when he was a young man) and some from my generation. To say I'm thrilled is the understatement of the year!!


  1. It is wonderful when old photos can get to someone who will appreciate them :-)

  2. That lovely young woman on the left there is so you!

  3. The history behind old photos. I love it. Sadly, my parents' old photos are long gone. Lucky you.

  4. Lucky you MA--what are cabinet cards?
    We probably know them as something else.

  5. Love old pics like this. BTW have you been to to check out putting a book together? I've heard it's great.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
