Today’s subject: Sentimental Pictures
What pictures were you gifted? Did you ask for them or was the gift a surprise? What did you decide to do with the pictures? Did you give them to other family members? If you were not gifted pictures, were you given other sentimental items? Do you have any items you want passed down to family or friends? Have you already let them know what you will be giving them?
With so many photographs, rather than leave them all in a box, we put together collages and had them hanging up in the cottage. When we bought the boat, we had nowhere to hang them, so reduced them in size and laminated them, so that we could put them up on the walls with blu tack.
There are a lot of family dogs in these too!
My SIL put her photographs into a coffee table and covered it with glass. It looked very effective and I wonder if she still has it since they moved to NZ 25 years ago.
Of course now we are in the digital age, photos like this are not so numerous as we can select the ones we like and want to keep from our chip then delete those that cut off heads, are blurred or out of proportion.
As to pictures I have been gifted, I can think of only one, and that is of my maternal grandmother who died several years before I was born. Mum gave it to me over ten years ago.
