Tuesday 8-28-12 Freebie Challenge -- Home Sweet Home

This is the house that I lived in until the age of about seven. I loved this house as it had such pretty gardens and a beautiful side lawn with a beautiful tree shading the yard. There were Adirondack chairs on the lawn and I loved to sit in them. There was a Grape Arbor that was covered with grapes and were used to make home made wine. All Italians had Grape Arbors in their yards. Under the arbor there was a large picnic table with chairs and benches. I loved to sit under the Arbor and watch the gardener work in the back garden. The top photo is of me taken in the Winter with my brand new White Fur Hat and Muff. I loved the hat and muff and wore them as often as I could.


Supplies Used:
JRA Super 7 Home Sweet Home -- Paper, Word Art Special, Frames, Butterfly



    What a lovely memory and super layout. I love the word art and the arrangement of the photos.
    I really like this Carol. Lovely photo of younger you with your pretty hat and hand muff and great photos of your old home. Reminds me so much of my old neighborhood in Queens. Great background paper and aged photo frames and used of the freebie.
    This is great, Carol. It's funny to go back and see where we lived. Great job on putting the layout together. Cute photos and love your journaling.
    How nice that you were able to visit your old house. I love the photos, and the freebie is perfect for them. Pretty green bg, too. Great layout!
    So sweet Carol. I really enjoyed your journaling and your photos are great!
    Great layout Carol. It's such fun to look back over old photos - I remember having a muff like that, too!
