Show & Tell Friday


When my grandpa passed away a few years ago, my dad brought home a little box full of slides. Going through them, I quickly realized that these slides with the red are pictures from when my dad was a little boy. Most of them seem to be from the mid-late 1940's. What little treasures! I took them up to Wal-Mart and had the images put onto a cd. I could not believe the quality of these pictures! They are incredible!






I found these picture of my grandparents in these slides. They look to have been taken close to the same time. I love them because they capture the essence of the kind of people they were. I used these pictures in these two layouts where I listed some things that reminded me of them. They are in my album of most favorite pictures.







Thanks for checking out my Show & Tell today.

For more, you can visit Kelli over at No Place Like Home.

What great treasures you discovered. We had hundreds of old slides, but they just went back to the 60s. We recently got a scanner that scans slides. It just scanned six at a time so it took a long time to get them all scanned, but I'm glad I did.

nannykim said...

What a find!! So neat that you could have them made up at Walmart!

Julieann said...
