When Teresa shared her Christmas album a couple of weeks ago I decided to share the scrapbooks I made when I was little. Isn’t the cover on the top one so cute and 70s.
When I was seven, an old friend of Mum’s came to stay for a few days and she got me started on a scrapbook (the top one) using old Christmas cards. Not long after that I came down with chicken pox and had three weeks off school. These were a great way to keep me amused.
Mum had cards back to the 50s and then I raided Grandma’s which went back much further.
I had fun making up stories with the pictures and creating themes. Unfortunately, nearly forty years later I can’t remember the details.
Anyway, here are a few of my favourite pages.
There were some lovely cards back then and most were on a heavy paper rather than card.
Most cards also had a second picture on the inside as well.
White Christmas themes seemed to dominate, but as we received several cards from England they may have come from there.
I used to love looking through them and it has been nice to look back now and recognise certain pages.
Pop over to Melody’s to see what other treasures are on show this week.
I think I will make this my last Tuesday Treasure, as I am running out of things to share. It has been great fun each Tuesday and I will still pop in to see what others are sharing. Thanks so much to firstly Clare and then Melody for organising it all.
