Thursday Challenge — "family"

The "ancestors' corner" at my mother's house.
That's my grandmother Miss Lucy (it's a Southern thing)
in the center. The woman could carry off a serious chapeau!
My other grandma was no slouch in the hat-wearing
dept. either—that's Mother Ripley (and that name
I really can't explain) in the feathered number.
I just love old family photos—how about you?

To see more of this Thursday Challenge, go here:


  1. Yes I do love them too!
    I like the one on the table where all of the women are looking towards the baby with smiles-what a great photo!

  2. That's a Ripley, err lovely corner :) I too love old family photos - it's a good idea to create a corner just for photographs.

  3. I wonder if that is you in the horizontal frame on the right... a baby with four doting women.

    I treasure the old photos. My dad gave me a black paper photo album that he put together when he was about 10 years old. He has the names, the dates, and the street and town on each... what a little historian he was (and photographer!)


  4. Old photos are so fascinating, especially the portraits!
