Photo Hunt ~ MEMORY myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

It is fun to participate in the Saturday Photo Hunt that is hosted by tnchick. This week's photo hunt theme is: MEMORY. If you would like to play along click on the link below.

Just the two of us
realize a memory is precious, especially when it is
a memory that has been past down through our family
heritage using photos.

The first photo is of my
Great Grandmother, Grace Edith H...with
my Grandmother, Gertrude Vivian B...
looking over her shoulder at her baby brother. Yes, that
little girl is my Grandmother.

She grew up to become a lovely young woman in the 1920's
also referred to as the roaring twenty's. While, it was popular
for young women to wear their hair in a fashionable Bob,
she preferred to keep her hair in long ringlets
as you can see in the second photo of her
at about 19 years of age.

Photo Theme. Join the blogroll. Visit participants.
So it's just the two of us realizing that these photos I took last week
of the framed originals are extremely dark. However,
the memory is perserved as someone took the time to pass it on,
and now I have a new photo of the originals, and may be able to
have some
restoration work done before it's too late. It's up to us
to pass on a treasured memory
before the names, dates, times and places fade.

Boy that does bring back memories. I think every time we went over to grandmothers house I would say, now who is that again grandmother? And she would patiently tell me who everyone was. :)

Hi Pamela ~~ Great photos to cherish.
Thank you for your visits, and your sympathy on the loss of my cousin. That makes 3 first cousins in the last 7 month. (all younger than me). I know
stress upset the diabetes, and with being unable to post and feeling sad
I expect my next blood test later tonight, to be up. Take care, Love, Merle.

Dear Pamela ~~ Thank you so very much for your very kind words. They brought a tear to my eye, and it was so nice of you to leave that message.
I am doing fine, just keep on keeping on, BUT I don't know about 100 !!
Thank you Pamela, Bless you, Love, Merle.

Hello Pamela! I love looking at old pictures like that! Thanks for sharing those. I doubt anybody reads my comment, but if they do I would want to remind people to write the names on the back of every picture as soon as they get it. Plus the date too! My mom had a box of old pictures and it took years for us to figure out who some of them were!

How are you feeling this weekend? Are you still having 80 degree weather :o( Pooey on you! Oops, I meant GOOD for you!

Love, Amy

How wonderful that you have these photos. I have a few vintage photos but in a lot of cases, I don't know who the people in them really are. One of my goals is to make sure our family photos are scapbooked and passed down through future generations.
