We're slowly helping them go through everything and decide whether to keep, us to have, or send to the charity shops. We've got 7 large boxes of photos to go through together and I can't wait to do that as I LOVE history and family, and have very few photos of me and family growing up. I've also seen a huge parcel of vintage postcards sent by my grandparents and parents in the 50s and 60s - they're definitely coming to me and perhaps I'll share some with you when I finally get them.
Anyway, today we brought back various cool things ...
|"silver" tray with cool oriental 'willow' pattern|
|Soooo cool - if we can get it going, wonder what we'll hear???|
|Can't wait to get this going - how cool will that be!|
|classic 80's polaroid|
|the next step in the mid-late 80's|
|vintage looking map of west indies (looks better than in pic)|
|An early school craft project (age 11) - the pineapple's cool|
The polaroids still work, but we need to get some new film for them. We're also on the look out for all the tapes that we filmed with the late 80's video camera - from holidays abroad, family outings, school end of terms and horseshows (mine). Can't wait! But must as we haven't found them yet :)
We've also come across various vintage magazines circa 1968 and I plan on doing a few blogs on some of the fun fashions and adverts in them.
Certainly spread the love with the parents today and looking forward to the next sorting out day. x
