Going through old photographs brings back to life those I have lost.
It doesn't make me sad, rather it reminds me of happy moments and
gives me a sense of connection.
I like to collect vintage photo albums too, when I can find them. This one,
although very vintage, was just like new when I found it. I imagine that the
previous owner had it stored away in a closet and meant to use it, but never did.
It's a sweet leather album with a floral motif and edged in woven leather lacing.
The pages inside are black paper and I was able to find some of those
old fashioned photo corners. I really should digitize these photos to
preserve them and it's a project I hope to complete this year.
While on the subject of nostalgia, I still love my Charles Faudree
decorating books. I don't think I will ever tire of his French Country
I spent the morning raking up debris out of garden beds. It's a never
ending job, but I do enjoy it. I never feel guilty sitting back and enjoying
a cup of tea or coffee after I have put in a good morning's work ;-)
Tonight the temps are supposed to take a dive again. I am actually
looking forward to it and am planning a big raging fire in the
fireplace. That's a treat for us in South Texas.
Big Texas Hugs,
