Oh the Vintage lovelieness!!

Wow, I managed to miss MyCreative Space Thursday again!! geez I'm having a shocker!

Anyway, I'll let you in on what I've been up to. When we cleaned out Grams we found 2 boxes full of slides of my family. So I jumped online and bought a basic slide scanner and have been a busy bee scanning each slide. 630-something slides later and I'm done!

Here's just a glimpse of some of my faves. My blogger layout likes to chop the edges off so click on the image to enlarge it. There's a few more images at my Flickr site too
The Aquarium at the Royal Easter Show when it was at Moore Park. It had so much more atmosphere in those days! I love everything about this picture - the font, the bunting and most importantly the saturated colours....
My mama in her Sunday best - notice the resemblance to me?? We're dead ringers of each other. I adore the gloves and the hat. Reckon kids of today would dress like this??
My Great grandparents living room. Oh what I would give to be able to see this house in real life. The images of it are just gorgeous. The chandeliers, the large wing chairs, patterned carpet and pink lounge! Oh my, just soo much vintage goodness!!
The lovely thing is that the dining table is at my folks place and i THINK that mirror is the one I have in my craft room now.

These photos make me giddy Bec! Especially the last shot. Look at that room divider - I could put so many little arrangements in those squares... and the carpet! The furniture... oh wow - love it all!!

Also, the intensity of the colours is just wild, isn't it? K
