mia familia....

I wanted to share these vintage photographs of my family. They are very sacred to me, and are copyrighted, so please do not use them in other mediums..( I don't like not sharing things, but like I said, they are sacred to me)
I am so grateful to have a grandmother who rescued many of these, and a grandfather who is computer savvy, and could scan them onto a disk and mail them to me.

I hope you truly love these, I love vintage photographs, but when they are my own ancestors...ahh, there is no words...
here you go.....

my grandma, isn't she beautiful?

  1. Okay,these are the neatest pictures ever! love it! How amazing to have these pictures!

  2. Thanks V :-)). I feel so blessed to have these. He also sent me many more. I want to get some pictures scanned of my mother and father in the 70's. They are were hippies, lived on a commune, lived in a tee pee, old one room school house, and a log cabin that my dad built (where I was born at home).
