My Grandparents Golden Again

I have created a number of pages with photos from the celebration of my grandparents' golden anniversary in 1946. It seems to fascinate me and though I was there, I was not yet two and remember nothing of it, not even the house where they then lived. I hope Dick and I make it the seven plus years to reach this milestone ourselves! Meanwhile, continuing with the double page challenge, I think the very first one I ever did was on this anniversary, so I wanted to try it again. This has one "new" item, their marriage record from the book in the courthouse. I used fewer photos but could see doing more pages with some of the others. Maybe one of these days...
Click on the images to see the pages larger, especially to read the documents on the right hand page.

  1. Lovely tribute to your grandparents and such a special memory for you. You are very fortunate to have the marriage record from the courthouse and newspaper clipping to include with this memory!

    So, I guess the baby in the photo is you. Sounds like another Golden Anniversary is coming pretty soon...time flies! We are 10 years away.

  2. What a lovely series of golden pages you´re creating. The documents and cuttings seem to make this story of a marriage come alive again. It´ll be interesting to see your own golden memories even if we do have to wait another seven years...
