My Vintage Family Photos


~~~ATTIC CLUTTER~~~








~~Jeanne about 2 and I am about 6 months old..with dad..I was pinching his cheek(:) Looks like Jeanne caught that ..she was probably horrified!!~~
I only have afew old photos of Jeanne and I when we were babies because when we were young we moved into a house with a basement and my mom had some boxes stored down there. The GoodWill had come to the door at our house and Dad went downstairs, picked up the box of family pictures covered with old clothes and gave it to the collectors without checking with Mom. Big mistake --ofcourse it was a mistake he didn't know precious pictures were down in that box..(:(
She didn't speak to him for about two weeks if I remember correctly. We went to check at the Goodwill after we realized they were gone , might have been weeks I can't remember..they said that any paper things may have been taken to the recyling center...
So we went there to see if we could find any thing that looked like it might be ours..
Jeanne and I can still remember walking through all those enormous bales of shredded paper looking for something we recognized.
Dad , Jeanne and I went to the center looking over the acres of bound up paper stacks hoping to find a glimmer of hope but nah we lost them ..boohoo(:(
Oh well, we have luckily have afew pictures and relatives gave us pictures they had..

As a mother I can just immagine how upset she must have been losing the BABY BOOKS~!!

  6. Patty(almost Nancy)! LOL...I just found that comment. My older sister told me that my parents named me after Nancy in the Funny Papers! I believed her! Your pictures are great, I luv old pictures. I could sit for hours and look at them.It's entertainment just looking at all the different changes that we go through...some good and some bad! Hope you have a great day today...I'm doing some deep cleaning today and decided to take a little break...back to work!

  7. That is shame about losing your photos. The ones you have left are nice. I love old photos also. I have been going through the family box of photos and it is fun to see the change in clothing and hair styles.

  8. Precious photo's. Your poor parents- I can imagine how they felt when the box or lack of it, was discovered. I love looking through my kids photo's.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    hugs to you,

  15. Hi Patty!
    The old photos are so wonderful! I love the old snowsuits and leggings we had to wear in the winter, well I like to see them I didn't like wearing them! I found some old photos when I was at my mom's house this last trip, they are such a treasure to me!
    Hugs, SHerry
