This is a fun event where everyone can show their before and after pictures. Be sure to go by Susan's charming blog to check out all of the other participants.
My little cupboard in my dining room is always ready for a metamorphosis. I usually try to dress it up for the different holidays throughout the year. So, today my BEFORE pictures are of my Mother's Day memorabilia.
This little cubby hole contains a picture of Bob with his mother and sisters. The little shoes were Bob's when he was small. Bob's mother was 95 years old on Saturday.
Now a picture of my mother and me shopping. She had just purchased this doll for me, and I couldn't take my eyes off of her - she was a Scarlett O'Hara doll. I'm sure Mother was telling me to watch where I was going.
A picture of mother and me again. I've included four generations of baby silverware and cups.
A cup that says Mama and a Mother's Day card from 1912.
Now, the time has come to morph my cupboard into the patriotic holidays of the summer.
In this cubby hole there are antique postcards, a school picture of me during WWII, and draft cards of my family from WWI, WWII, and the Viet Nam War. Did I mention that my family never throws anything away?
An old flag that I found in my great-grandmother's belongings and a stereopticon card from the late 1800s.
