Memories in black & white

My Saturday in six words:


please click the photos for a slideshow

Yesterday, I posted a poem for my dear mother on my Dutch blog, Doldriest: Mom, can I be a child once more? In search of an illustration for that poem, I opened my photo album which I hadn’t seen in years. And found these jewels. So many memories… so in stead of doing my taxes, I’m lost in the past.

Will you search for sweet old memories today too?

  1. Lovely pictures and you looked so pretty in that dress and with your hair so special on your first Communion. I’m often busy with my new and old photo’s, digging up memories. There is only one bad thing about this: time goes by so quickly 😉


    1. I absolutely HATED to be dressed like this back then, Karin. And had to sleep with the krullers in my hair all night long. Little sleep that was haha. And my mom would not allow me to wear long stockings, while the rest had. Now I’m glad for that. My gosh, where did that thought come from?!
      Hugs, enjoy your photos, dear.


  2. Nothing I like better than to drag all the albums out and sit on the bed with them. Time just vanishes. Do it so seldom now, as everything’s online these days.


    1. Indeed, Jo. I have a digital photo frame, but nothing replaces the feeling of an album. All those memories take us to places, that only can be seen in our hearts. And there time does not exist 🙂


  3. There must be (though very few) such photos of my family, but I have no idea who possesses them. Maybe I’ll call my sister & ask…hmmmmm
