I love cameras

I think old cameras are treasures! And over Thanksgiving, we rummaged through the basement at Chad's parents house and came back upstairs with a few old cameras and a box of his childhood photos. For me, that was like Christmas morning! What fun! We sat in the living room, and went through the photos divvying the photos into piles. The cameras,.... no one was interested in but me! The top photo on this mosaic was Chad's camera when he was a boy which we brought home! The bottom row of cameras have already been hanging out on the shelves in my collection!

great mosaic. and a great memory - we did that at my sister's birthday when she pulled out some family photos to show my niece who was born after my father died...it was a great time of making fun of clothes and hair and then warm memories.
