My Photo Walls

So I ended up hanging the pictures today.  And here is how it turned out.

This is the side with my vintage pictures.
And here is the kids/family side.

I took some close-ups for you.  Description of photo is below picture.

This is my mom!  Wasn't she cute?  I am not sure if my parents were married at this time.  Lovin' that top.  My dad raced motorcycles, they were at a race.

This is my husband's grandma's sister.  I don't even know her name.

My parent's wedding picture.

My dad on Santa's lap.

Hubby on Santa's lap.

The first "nice" picture I got of my children.  Nic was 2 and Josh was 5.  They are 16 & 19 now.

This is Sophie at 18 months.  Nancy Gowins  took this photo.

These pictures make me cry.  Top one is my dad with his first two grandchildren.  Josh is on the left and his cousin Ryan is on the right.  Bottom picture is when the boys were 16 with my dad. They are even bigger now!

Another Nancy Gowins photo.  My girls all in their tutus, vintage of course!  Lauren was 12, Sophie was 1 and Portia was 6.

Sophie is 3 months here.  Another Nancy Gowins photo.

When the cousins came out, jumpin' in the pool!

Josh was 6, Nic was 3 and Lauren was 1.

We had this done right when we moved out to Oregon.  It will be 8 years in August.
Portia was 8 months, Lauren was 6, Nic was 8 and Josh was 11.

I hope these didn't bore you, I had fun remembering these photos.  I love to see pictures of people I know, or am aquainted with, from before I knew them.  I think it is fascinating to see their past and then see where they are now!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful !! I like your post!! i enjoy !!

    Have a nice sunny sunday my dear.......bye!

  2. Those vintage pictures are special to have them to pass down. Prudence, I was wondering if you received your print? I thought you would have it by Fri. or Sat.???
    Hope you like it!!! deborah Shipped UPS

  3. What a great post. I loved seeing your family history. I also loved what you have been doing to your house. It looks great! I like how you arranged your photo frames too. I am one of those people who will arrange them on the floor in one gazillion arrangements until I get JUST THE ONE I like. I am way too detail oriented.
    I think my favorite photo is the girls in the vintage tutus. Just lovely.

  4. Hi Prudence, love the wall. I've always wanted to do that but didn't know how. How did you get them all straight? The photos are great too, so much work in that job but it's worth it, looks great. cheers e
