a 1942 wedding


I have been wanting to join in on A Favorite Thing Saturday but haven't been able to think of anything to post about until now ... my niece was married last weekend and that reminded me of some fun things I found from when my parents got married in February 1942.

I found my mom's wedding scrapbook at my parents house after my father passed away in 2011 - I was going to post a picture of the cover of it but for some reason Blogger won't let me upload any more photos?!  I also have a darling picture of my parents, shortly after they got married, outside of their first home together that I wanted to share today.  WAH!  Anyway, at least I got to upload some of her cards before Blogger pooped out on me ...

  6. I hope we get to see photos at a later time. The cards are delightful.

  7. My grandmother kept so many of her cards in scrapbooks. I loved to look at them when I was a child. We would look at them together. She called them her memories.

  11. Love, love the vintage cards. I think they are so much prettier and more stylish than those of today. Add in the faded colors and you have perfection! How lucky you are to have this wedding album, Sally!

    I'm so glad you joined in this week!

  18. What a treasure to have! I think the vintage cards are so pretty.
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes - I am hoping the hydrangea was cut down due to dying/damaged, not just because.
    Enjoy your evening.
