Tin's

Fellow blogger It's a small town life posted an article about old tin pictures and asked if we had any in our family heirlooms......Reminded me of a very unusual picture I have of my maternal grandparents......
This is an engagement picture taken in Sweden where they immigrated from. It's some type of tin and has a hanger on the back so it can be hung on the wall.

How excellent! Great images of them and such a decorative arrangement. Unusual...I haven't seen anything like this.

I've one of those too! Same background (so, of course, I did a double-take!) containing a baby picture of my mother. Precious memories!

This is just precious. It's a blessing to have pictures of ancestors but when they are framed so beautifully it's a double blessing.
