Photo Companion to "Comfort In The Past"

Here are some photos that go along with my last post. Click here if you want to get caught up.
These are the multicolored teacups I wrote about. They've been in my family for 6 generations. They are pictured here with some of my Easter decorations.
Welcome to Louisiana - come along with me to visit some family cemeteries...
Lovely Louisiana scenery along the way.
An old cemetery that could use some TLC.
Old iron crosses at the cemetery.
This cemetery suffered some damage from hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005.
One of my treasures is this photograph of my great grandmother. I had never seen a picture of her as a child until about a year ago. This photo is probably from around 1907.
That's my great grandpa on the right (I think the other guy was his cousin). Isn't this a cute pose? It's his grandmother who owned the tea set. I wish I had a picture of her. Maybe someday I'll find one.

I love old b&w pictures! Those are great - and especially sweet. Your great grandmother picture is adorable.

The tea cups are amazing. Wow.

Louisiana looks warm and wonderful. :o)

I loved these posts, Stace. We need to plan another girl's trip/cemetary hunt. I'm thinking and praying for you (and Chuck) today especially.
