Weekly Theme: Old-fashioned:


This week I have two photos of things belonging to love ones who have passed.
The first is my maternal grandmother's typewriter.


This second photo is of my dearly departed mother-in-law and her mom and sisters (in their old-fashioned clothes). My mother-in-law, Hedy, is the second to the youngest.

What a superb typewriter! I haven't seen a keyboard quite like that, without the numbers across the top.
I love the family photo too. I feel we must cherish these, for future generations.

The manual typewriter is very old. I love to look at old photos. They tell so much about the lives in the past.

I've got a few treasures around like these myself. Your photos are great and a wonderful way to honor those who came before.

I'm here from the Bloggers Over 50 Blog Roll, and before I can add you to the member list, I need to ask you to put either a link from your side bar to the Over 50 blog page OR if you wish, you can add the blog roll itself. [the directions to adding the blogroll on your side bar are found at the site....just scroll down and directions to add it are in a 'framed' box there.

When you have the link and/or blogroll then I will add your blog url.

[this is for bloggers who are using the blog roll to visit others ---that way if you get visitors from there, they'll be able to find their way back to the bloggers from the roll/or link]

I'll drop back to check later this week.

I'm happy to meet you!!!
