Family History Project

 I antiqued a box with decoupage images and tea varnish.
 The front of the box.
 Inside the box
 The index cards I have been making.
 This one is about me.
 This one is about me and my Aunty Mary who is 3 years older than me.
 Mum and Dad.
 My maternal grandmother Nana Peggy and my Polish Grandfather.
My paternal grandmother Nana Hornby nee Bowker.

For the relatives in the USA this is the Shaw Family. Mary Riley/Shaw/Mollison with her daughter Margaret and Mary Kinsey Harkins known as Mamie.
Mary Riley was my Gt Gt Grandmothers sister.

I still have a lot more to make but at least they are not stuck in a cupboard. I had all the originals colour copied at Staples.

I think so many of us just leave our treasures stuck in a cupboard. Love what you are doing with yours and lovely keepsake for future generations of the family. Anne x

Love your box and what you have done with your family photographs to preserve them for future generations. Lovely idea. Elizabeth x

This is absolutely fabulous. I wish I had a 'family' of photographs - such a great idea. Perhaps I could 'borrow' vintage photos and images and create one of my own.
