Old Family Album

I've been meaning to share like a billion old photos of my grandparents. These photos make me REALLY excited and I have A LOT of them to share, and I admit I do think I have really attractive old relatives...good genes! Can you see the resemblance? ;)

I was going to put a few into a nice old collage, and I will do that one day for the blog...but for now, here are a few I picked for their lovely style relevancy.

My grandma Helen holding my mom at Euclid Beach. (late 40s)

Yes, I know all of her swim outfits were amazing. She loved the beach.

My Favorite! Grandpa Bill, and Grandma Helen on their wedding day. (1941) She was 18 and he was 23. I'll be sharing a few of their beautiful wedding photos probably this spring.


Grandpa being a total swanky swooner. She wasn't buying it apparently. Good thing! (late 30s)

4th in from back Left. Grandpa being a stud with his boys. (late 30s)

Yay! hope you have enjoyed.

Do you have any cherished old photos of your relatives?
