During the process of pestering my relatives to dig around for these pictures, I made sure to write down the names, places and dates when there was someone in the family who could give me those details. I'm going to write the information on the back of each picture to preserve it for the future. A month or so ago I got all the photographs framed and we FINALLY hung them on the wall in the foyer today. Hooray!
(forgive the awful picture but I am too tired to retake it!)
Also on the "I love old things" front... I often pick up old necklaces and beads at antique shops, flea markets and estate sales. Sometimes they are in good condition and can be worn as is, but other times I need to make some repairs or restring them entirely. Here are two of my favorite new finds. I just finished restringing the green and blue one...
How about you...did you finish a longstanding project over the long weekend?
