Welcome, and thank you for joining me for another Show and Tell! Thank you, Kelli, for graciously hosting Show and Tells on your blog every Friday, to the enjoyment of so many.
This week, I'm going to share with you my baby photo album. Scroll down to see the front cover and pictures, and click to enlarge.
All of the photos were taken by my Mom, and most of them were developed by Mom as well - in the old-fashioned, pre-digital way. Photography has been Mom's hobby for years, and brought many hours of fun to her and all her family.
It wasn't as easy as it is for most of us today with our digital cameras, but Mom still made the effort to capture those priceless, treasured moments, knowing they will be remembered with joy in the years to come.
Isn't there something wonderfully nostalgic in those black-and-white photographs? I so enjoy looking through them, and appreciate them as family treasures that will be passed to the next generation. The oldest photographs in all our family photo albums are dated to the 1930's.
PS: The boy you will see next to me in the first picture (on the left) was kindly nursed by my mother, as his own mother was unable to breastfeed. Wasn't it wonderfully generous of her?
I hope you are all having a lovely day, and I'm wishing you the most splendid weekend. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the lovely comments and emails you generously sent this week. And a special 'thank you' to all the dear ladies who took the time to contact me personally and share their kindness and wisdom. I feel so blessed by being 'introduced' to you all through blogland!
