Vintage Things Thursday

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Vintage Things Thursday, hosted by Suzanne at Thanks Suzanne! I have shared these in the past, but for those of you who are new to this, or haven't seen them before, I am sharing them again. I don't know why, but I love vintage wedding pictures. This is a picture of my in-laws on their wedding day in 1944. My father in law was in the army, so they selected a military cake topper. My mother in law had beaded the whole thing herself. (please click on any picture to enlarge) It is made of a chalk-like material on the bottom. It is also musical, but no longer works. It is very old and fragile now, but I am happy to have it. My mother in law just turned 91 in March.

The picture on the left is a picture of my mother and aunt. My mother is the one with the fingers in her ears! lol I don't know who the other people are, but I just love the pictures. I wonder who they were, and what kind of marriage they had.
Thanks for coming by to visit, and be sure to "hop" over to Suzanne's for more vintage fun!

I love old wedding pictures too. It does make you wonder what happened to some of these couples.

Hi Deb, just catching up.
Funny that your mom had her finger in her ear, lol.
LOVE your black and whites. SO SO cool.
I only wish we could know what was going on around our favourite pics.
Have a great weekend.
