Memories, Refracted


Through old photographs...

Of my childhood home in New Mexico...

They remind me today of those I love...


And miss...


What's a holiday without nostalgia, right!? I promise I won't do this again until Christmas!

I adore looking at old photos! And I love nostalgia. I'm one of those people that like watching peoples family-travel-home movies more than they themselves do. Wierd or what! Hope your brunch was a success!! An, you are as cute as a button. I already miss you as a child:).

You are brave... I never know if I'll be smiling nostalgically or full-out bawling after a trip through the photo box. Your pictures are so fun to see.

I get very nostalgic when I see other people's old family pictures because we lost our family albums on our first trip to U.S 18 years ago. I can't still get over that. You are very lucky you have old memories on print.

Olha Tina, eu particularmente, acho que as boas e belas recordações, fazem bem para alma e, consequentemente para saúde. Portanto, qualquer dia é dia para se matar as saudades.

Your old photos are beautiful, very factory girlish (the Sienna Miller movie). I always look through my parents photos for long lost memories, photography has seemed to loose its classic glamour to visual effects these days, I love how real and raw these are

You can feel the warmth in these photos and the beautiful little girl you were so obviously prefigured the lovely woman you've become. You're very generous to share your memories this way.

oh Tina what a cute girl you were!!!
your old pictures inspired me so much that I want to go and scan some of my own favorites! :)
I've kept even my parents' old photos and I LOVE to take a look at times...
are they going to get spoiled? it's so sad... I wish we could save all the nostalgic photos forever!

Tina, Thank you for sharing your family photos. They are wonderful!Old family photos come laced with such wonderful memories, it makes my heart sing. Easter is an especially significant holiday for me, I have such clear memories of the sun, church, our new dresses, shoes and bonnets..(yes I said bonnets:-)) Of course we always wore beautiful dresses in the summer but none looked more beautiful than our Easter dress. Even my sisters, all tomboys, had a wonderful time and are smiling in our photos.

Hope you had a great day!

There's no way to undo times impact on your life.
Maybe a new heart, mines far to jaded and cynical for love

There's no way to undo time impact on your life.
Except, maybe, a new future (but it is not as good as it used to be).

I see you still want to improve the world, Amazing, nobody does it anymore.

Tina, Your brother? looks so much like my husband did that I'm going to hazard a guess and say he was born in 59.

Oh Ms. Muse,

I do hate to be disagreeable...but "until next Christmas"? Never wait when the mood strikes. Well, of course that's only my opinion. But still...

I love old photos, even those of strangers. I once went to an antique store and came home with about 10 old photographs of people and families i didn't know. It's the story behind them that interests me. Who are they? Where have they been?

Thanks for sharing some of yours!

And I do remember when everyone used to hang jelly molds on the walls above kitchen cabinets.

Ahh old photo' printouts never quite have the same heart do they?

I love your blog, I've just started one myself so fingers crossed that people will enjoy it!

Your childhood home looks lovely, nice and sunny - not like here in North West England.

Please, check out my blog if you get the time!:)

Love those low-slung houses of the era! We lived in Taos for a couple of years when I was a kid. Where were you?

I love family pictures. Post away if you like. Its funny how old photos fade almost to look ghostly of times that have log ago passed.
