I love looking at old pictures and old photo albums. About a year ago, my bloggy friend Bex at Adventures of the Grigg Boys hosted a meme called Funky Foto Flashback, where we shared old photos. Life got busy for Bex, and so she hasn’t been blogging as much lately. (I still love you, Bex!)
Just recently I discovered LT at A Day With Two, and she hosts “Take Me Back Tuesday,” which will fulfill my need to scan in those old pictures!
This past weekend was garage sale weekend. Literally. It was a special weekend for garage sales in our town, and so we went to at least 25 sales and missed the other 200. At one of the first sales I went to, I found this Norman Rockwell collector’s plate:
The title of this plate is “A Young Man’s Dream”. I’ve always loved Norman Rockwell’s illustrations; they are so nostalgic. I love this plate…see the decorative border? This plate reminds me of this photo:
It is a picture of my dad, probably taken by my mom, while he was a vicar in Houston, Texas. So of course, I had to have this plate!
Next week, I’ll tell you the story about a plate I don’t even own. This plate is called “Making Believe at the Mirror”.
On Wednesday, I’m starting something new, and I hope you’ll join me! I’ll be writing about a place I’ve been, and I hope you will, too. Then just link up your post, and we’ll travel the world together! (Or maybe we’ll just go out on the town!) Whether you’ve traveled the country or stepped out to your own backyard, share with us: Where in the world are you? Photos are a plus!
