Sepia Saturday

Betsy requested I participate in Sepia Saturday, so here goes.....
I hope you like these photos as much as I do


This is Charley and Fay, my grandparents, in 1949, on their anniversary.
Grandma does look really young to of been married for 33 years, the women in our family all got that young-looking gene, and since Grandma got married when she was just 16, she does look great.
Grandpa was 24 when they got married.

This is Tom and Carrie, my great uncle and aunt. Aunt Carrie and my grandma were sisters.
Both families were farmers and lived in Breckinridge Oklahoma most all of their lives.

I think this note from the back of this photo explains the occasion. Is this sweet or what?

  1. Rhonda, I love these two pictures and the fact that they celebrated the anniversary on the same day. How wonderful!
    I can't imagine being married at 16, can you?

    I've added you to the Sepia Saturday list. Welcome to the group!

    (I was out when you left your comment and didn't get it until just a few moments ago.) It may hamper the number of visits you receive this week, but next week we should have a link-device set up that you can sign up for.

    I'm glad Betsy invited you.

    These anniversary photographs are wonderful. The note from the back of the picture is real bonus. Hope to see you and yours again next week, on Sepia Saturday.

  6. There is something very special about old photos! I wanted to use sepias for my latest quilt project but got sidetracked when I went to pull fabrics and did it in pinks and browns instead. Why sepias for a quilt? I love old photos. My first quilt was also in sepias many moons ago.

    Hugs ~

  7. Old photos are just priceless. One of my favorite past times is looking at old photos and having my parents tell little stories about the people in them.....thanks for sharing...

  8. Rhonda, the handwriting is your Aunt Evelyn's - and my sister, who passed away Jan 21 - so, you see, she is still with us! And I recall what fun it was going to Aunt Carrie and Uncle Tom's who was so special to me. Their house was always very cluttered which bothered Mother and although she tried Aunt Carrie did not change her housekeeping. Aunt Carrie planted fruit trees in her 90's - that is faith! Mom
