The Brenda Photo Challenge-Old

This is a picture of my grandparents on their wedding day. They were married on October 15, 1927. Do those headpieces look like roaring 20's style or what?

And this table was one of their early pieces of furniture!

I don't really know how old this box is. It belonged to my maternal grandmother and I remember seeing it in her house when I was little. It's well-used and I love it!

This pocket watch belonged to Rich's grandfather when he worked on the railroad. The date on the coin says 1883, but I don't know if the watch is that old. It is probably sometime in the early 1920's.

Taking these pictures made me realize how precious these family heirlooms are and I hope that my children will appreciate and cherish them as much as I do.


A big thanks to Donna at Made In Heaven for hosting this fun photo challenge!

Hallo Jeannette! Thank you for visiting my blog! I will keep you informed on the fate of the old plane tree and the bloody underground garage :)
The old wedding photo from the 1920s and the old furniture look great! I remember my grandmother's photo, it looks so similar. The headthings the girl are wearing look quite modern, haha!
Thank you for sharing and have a nice weekend!

These pictures are great. This was a great challenge. Each person's post reminds me of more and more of the treasures from the past. I agree that I'm hoping that my children will appreciate and care for my heirlooms as much as I do.

What wonderful treasures you have! It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'd have to go with the wedding picture. That's beautiful - and precious to have.
