bored already with this album.........
You saw some pictures of it in the past : ) ,
but I really wanted to show you the photo's of
the book now it's done .
To see my studio in
" WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE 2013 "
This book holds some of the sepia photo's
of my grandparents of father's side .
My dear granddad and -mom Sietze and Jantje .
They had five children (my father was their firstborn)
and got 23 grandchildren.
Although it took me some time ,
(I had to put it aside many times to do more important things : )
it was a lot of fun making this . I printed the photo's on fabric
and used a lot of tea and coffee dyed lace .
There's some very old lace and bridal lace too .
You know I often use glass and pearls from broken jewelry....
the beautiful clasp came from a necklace that was given to me
by Maria's mother- in- law, and so were a lot of pearls.
Thank you so much oma !!!!
There also are some gorgeous old laces
that were sent to me by my friend Doni !!!!
You know her from..... and can find her "HERE" at
'Faith Grace and Crafts'
Thank you so much Doni, you are such a dear friend
you know how I appreciate it !!
I will tell more about this gift in an other post..... !!
I hope you enjoy...........
Clck photo to enlarge
The photo's of my two aunts are not sharp,
maybe I replace them if I find some better way to enlarge,
or maybe this is as good as it gets.
I didn't want to leave them out ,....... they're so cute.
Love the hairribbons..... !!
I love this photo, with the moms that took a walk
and picked some flowers.....
People in those days were taking it very serieus
when their picture was made , I think .
There's hardly a smile, even in this setting...........
while my grandma had a very joyful heart.........
she's the one with the flowers on the pram......
(ofcourse I don't underestimate the time my grandparents were living in........
very very troubled...and a lot of hard and heavy work.....)
It was this heart that pulled her through........!!!
The last photo is of the first son on his way to his bride.....
My parent's weddingday .
Their weddingpicture is in the top of my sidebar
'Jaap and Jannie'.....
Next item to finish is 'My Personal Bridesbook' : ).....
See you next week,
