Carriage House Cellars ...

Another Grampa and Grandma G picture taken sometime in the 1970's to 1980's ... somewhere in the Western US.

How's this for tacky touristy fun?

Although I do wonder why they advertise "Ice Cold Beer" -- at a wine tasting room ...

Found Photos ...

Some years ago I found a package of photos in a box near the trash can at my storage unit.
They had been left in the rain ...
I couldn't resist looking through what was left of the pictures, and realized this was someone's European vacation!
So I salvaged what I could of the group ...

Some of the photos were completely destroyed.
In this one, though, a tiny piece of the picture was left untouched ...
In the shape of a heart!

To see hearts from around the world, visit "Random Hearts" - and share YOUR heart on Guest Heart Thursday!

Oooh, I just realized this is a perfect post for Al's "Sunday Scans"!
Where we link up our posts of anything scanned.
In other words ... "Show us YOUR Old Stuff!"

Eavesdropping Gnomes - Sunday Scans

This is another of Grandpa and Grandma G's photos taken on one of their many road trips throughout the US West during the 1980's. I recognize these ladies as being friends of Grandma G's, but I don't remember their names.

I thought it was cute that they were so intent on their conversation that they failed to notice those eavesdropping gnomes right behind them!

Amsterdam Tour Boat and Bridge

I finally unearthed one of my old photo albums from Europe - from the mid- to late-1980's.

One of the trips we took was to Amsterdam, where we took a boat tour of the canals ... I was a little nervous of going on the boat after seeing the one ahead of us heading for this very low bridge.

It ended up being one of the highlights of the trip!

Perry over at "My World" is starting a new meme - it's called "Bridges Weekly".
Come join in the fun!

Old Advertisement - Sunday Scans

I found this wonderful advertisement page in a ripped up old magazine in a dumpster, and I just had to have it!

It is so huge, I couldn't scan it all on one page, and had to make it in two parts.

Don't you just love this gorgeous old Packard convertible?

Have you scanned something lately? If so, link it up with Al's new meme - "Sunday Scans"!

Oooooh, and guess what? I see a heart - a late addition to "Guest Heart Thursday"!
