Show & Tell Friday!

Show and Tell


Hey......... a first for me......... it's Show & Tell Friday over on Kelli's blog, and I am participating today!
My grandparents were married on April 18, 1921.
This is their Wedding Book........ it is so pretty and precious....... just a few simple paper pages, yet it means so much........
Not only do I think it is just beautiful, but it has the details of their wedding......Grandma filled it in with pencil........
She recorded her attendants, her guests, her gifts, their "first callers", and their honeymoon.
The really REMARKABLE coincidence about it is that it says Gramma and Grampa went "by machine" to San Jose, Stockton, Sacramento and Modesto..... And, here I am years later..... living in Stockton!
This is one of my treasured possessions, and I wanted to share with you!












Happy Friday!

Hi Joyce!! What a lovely piece of your family's history!! I don't have anything like this have but many other things that bring me joy, including my great grandmother's engagement ring from 1904. I wear it everyday, as she, my grandmother and my Mom did.

It's nice to meet you, and I thank you for sharing this special treasure!
Blessings and joy to you,
Becky
