5 DAYS: Old Photographs

I've spent today looking and sorting through old photographs. When my Nan passed away we found a box, (with Elvis on the front), full of old photographs and also more recent ones of our family, so I'm on a mission to rearrange all of our family photo albums for my Mum so that I can include all of the ones we found at Nanny's house! Mum even went into town today to buy some brand new photo albums; does it make me boring that I enjoy doing this sort of thing!?

I find old photos fascinating, especially when its people you know! I love looking at all of the old fashions - my Mum has had some cracking eighties hairstyles in her time! Here are a selection of photos I found from when before I was born, so pre-1990s.

Please 'read more' below to see more photographs!


 This makes me laugh because my Mum (left) and her boyfriend at the time (right) have the same hair style! Good old 80's!

(Lovely shoes!)

 I love how beautiful my Mum looks in this photo!!

I hoped you enjoyed them! I'll leave you with one more photo which ties in with the jolly season! I found this image of me as a child sat with Santa....I don't remember what I asked for that year.
