Mosaic Monday

My sister asked if I had any photographs of Mum when she was younger so that she could use them on a collage workshop.  It set me thinking and I made this mosaic to add to the Mosaic Monday challenge at 
Here she is again with my Dad in Nana's back garden.
My Dad looks like a real trendy dude and look at the state of my skinny legs.  Thats my brother in the pram.
I was about 5 and he would be 3


  1. Fab photos Lynn. I have boxes full of family photos that I have to sort through at some point....just love old photos.

  3. Really lovely photos Lynn, you look so much like your Mum. Lovely collage. Hugs, Anne x

  4. Beautiful images of your Mom and Dad. And I love the last shot of your family together. It is fun pulling out the old family photos. Thanks for sharing, have a great week!

  5. Oh how lovely Lynn! I don't have any old family pictures at all sadly.
    I agree with Anne, you do look like your mum. She looks ever so young in that picture set in Nana's back garden.
    These will set us all up for a nostalgic day. Have a good one :0) Mo xx

    1. Thank you Jemma I'm glad you like it. Today's post seems to be touching everyone.
      I've just found a pic of my grandparents so I may write another post and include it.

  7. Love the photos :)
    I'm always fascinated by old family photos - I particularly love seeing my grandparents when they were young, it gives such life to the stories they told

  8. Lovely images of times past. What memories they must evoke.

  9. Lovely photos, I love the one of your parents walking with you and your brother. Pushchairs were a bit different to the prince and princess chariots of today!

  10. I love looking through old family photos and seeing images of parents/grandparents when they were young and full of expectation. These look like lovely treasured memories.
    Oh my goodness I love your studio! I wish! It is so full of light and inspiration.
    Have a great week and thanks for stoppipng by my blog. No I have never taken photos through a jam jar, I will have to give it a go!
