Tonight I have been thinking about my Grandma.
You will often see in my posts that the material I am using comes from my Grandma’s scrapbooks. I thought I would share a few pictures of them.
Some of the scrapbooks have interesting covers to them. I really like this one.
Most of the scrapbooks are spiral bound, but a few of them are soft bound like the one above. Some of these are fragile as the binding has come apart. I have to be careful not to mix the pages up.
Of course the contents of the scrapbooks are what intrigue me. They really give me a glimpse into what my Grandma thought about and what type of things she liked.
I also thought I would share a picture of my Grandma from during the time she was putting together the scrapbooks that I have.
In the picture she is with my Grandpa, my dad and his younger sister at the Badlands in South Dakota.
This picture really makes me smile.
I love the way that my aunt is dressed. I can also really see one of my cousins in her look.
The big binoculars hanging around her neck really stand out and it is interesting to see my Grandpa without a beard.
OK, my thoughts are wandering in many other directions now and you will probably see at least one post next week based on where they have wandered 🙂
