Family Pictures: Album Seven

Happy Wednesday everyone!

It's time once again for some pictures from our Family Vault (i.e. the box of 11 albums in our den) and if you're just joining us you can read about these albums and see the first one here, the second one is here, the third album is here, the fourth album is here, the fifth is here and the sixth album is here.

And as always: I'm sure it goes without saying that these pictures are not to be posted anywhere or used in any way without express permission from me. Period. I can be contacted at katamommy at gmail.com. I promise I don't bite! :D










Oh what I wouldn't give for this huge Santa head to hang on my house. lol




Have a great day everyone!

Oh my, they are smack dab in the middle of the fifties in these photos, and boy do I love it! :) From the saddle shoes to the rabbit ears on the TV, these wonderful family snapshots are pure nostalgia gold.

Thank you so much for continuing to share these amazing albums with us, honey!

Tons of hugs,
♥ Jessica

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

Such great photos Maggi! I get a kick out of seeing the furniture and that TV and antenna is fabulous. Your Toot won't even now what that is now that they don't exist anymore...isn't that crazy?

I’ve enjoyed you sharing all of these, so fun to take a step back in time!

Love the dress in the second photo...I'm thinking I could use one of those, looks like it would hide a multitude of sins...aka my ample a**!

Love and hugs,
Karyn
