More Vintage Photos and Rasberry Road Talk

Here's some more things I found in the vintage suitcase from the closet. I think I may be through all the pictures. Now to go through all the clippings and letters!


This is my mother at age 20.


This is a corsage I found preserved from a dance in the vintage suitcase I'm going through. How cool is that!


This is my mother at age 7 playing in the snow. It appears to be across the street from the house where she grew up! Isn't this great!


This is from a newspaper article about the cheerleaders at her high school, which of course, features my mom. She also played basketball, field hockey and swam!

I really feel lost without my laptop. It's so easy just to sit down on the sofa and go to it. Instead, I have to be in the other room now, away from the family, with non of my stuff. I'm so spoiled. To think that before this was the only way I got on the computer, and it never bothered me then!

We are supposed to share a quirky fact about ourselves and do a lo about it using our favorite kit from Cottage Arts. Let me tell you my quirky fact: I will not drink milk out of a plastic cup. I think it's disgusting. Only a glass!

I haven't been digiscrapping using this computer. All my pics for the most part are on the other one with all my kits and such. I don't have PSE on here. This is the kids computer! It's so hard not to scrap.

Of course, I could paper scrap, but it has been so cold and my bonus room is freezing with those attic dormers. Even though I have a ceramic heater up there, I'd have to wait until it warmed up. BRRRRR!!!

I'm soooo with you on the milk out of a plastic cup, lol! I can only drink milk out of clear glasses and only if the milk came straight from the fridge. So see, it's not that quirky! :)

Some great treasures there - my favorite is the one of your mother in the snow. BTW I'm with you on the milk in a plastic cup thing - I know exactly what you mean!

Such awesome photos you have. I haven't been able to get my mom to part with hers and I don't have a scanner that works anyway. (at least for now) Hope you can get your puter back up soon. I can't imagine not being able to scrap for too long. I took a 5 day vacation and lost my mojo then.

That first photo of your mum is gorgoeus, I can't wait to see how you scrap these photos.
