We Are Family

I love old photos, especially old family photos. For today's Little Red House Monday Mosaic, I am sharing a few photos of my parents as young children, and young adults as well photos of my grandparents and great grandparents in their younger years.

Amazing how my great grandfather's older eyes are exactly the same eyes of my brother and the youth of my grandmother resembles me when I was a young adult. Scanning and organizing all the family photos which have been handed down to me from my parents has been a long and sometimes endless task, but a task that frequently reminds me of my connection to my family.

Guess I should post a few photos of the new recipes I have tried these last couple of weeks.

Have you noticed I haven't posted anything recently dealing with knitting and sewing? I need to get motivated...Christmas is right around the corner.

That's a very sweet collection of family photos, especially the more candid ones. I think Mosaic Monday is a great way to make family keepsakes.

What a lovely collage of cherished photographs! They are endlessly fascinating, those glimpses into past lives, past fashions. And how terrific that you can find similarities among the relatives then, and now. What a treasure!

I wish I had more of my family.
