Attic Treasures


Yesterday I went to put something in the attic storage space and became.....well annoyed with the mess. I don't tackle the attic in the summer, it's too hot up there, and things have a tendency to pile up. This time, I opened one of the trunks I've been carrying with me since--well pre-marriage. I found some things I had been bugging my Aunt for--pictures and papers from my father's family. The treasures ended up consuming my day and I am still scanning and photocopying everything so I can make a scrapbook for my son.

Tomorrow Aunt Carole and I are getting together to go over everything and take a ride out to some of the old family houses. I can't wait to find out who this precious girl is! She has the sweetest face and look at her bracelet! The boy I know is Ralph, his name is on the back of the photo. I love that he has a cane and a gold pocket watch. Love the piano shawl he is leaning on; I think it is a tapestry....
Well off to do cleaning and some shopping. I need to buy cookie pans before the holiday baking commences.....

Attics are so much fun! Is it just me or does the photo you found look an awful lot like your littel grand daughter on the sidebar!
Hugs,

Digging through old trunks and boxes are always a blast!

I was just going to leave a comment saying the same thing as Dawn -- the photo of the little girl does resemble your granddaughter (at least in the two photos). I admire you for taking on this project -- I have so many old photos stored in boxes that need to be identified.
