Lots to do Vintage









This weeks theme at "Lots to do" is vintage.

Anyone who has visited here before will know Im a huge Vintage fan and am very lucky to have hundreds of vintage family images dating back to the 1800's as my Great Grandfather did photography as a hobby, and developed alot of his own work.
My grandfather then followed in his footsteps , so the library of material i have to work with is huge. I am very lucky.

Here are 3 layouts , a double layout showing my Grandfather , he was an undertaker . The horse drawn carriage pictures were found on a set of glass negatives in mint condition in his garage.
The other layout is of my Grandparents , this is one of my favourite layouts. This picture doesnt do justice to the delicate pink that I used on here.

Hope you like them , 12 x 12 are always awkward to photograph .....my grandad and great grandad should be here to show me how !!

Thanks for stopping by my blog .
