Of all the albums…
I have created I do believe this one has been photographed and looked over more than any other. The cover of this album can be seen in my book “Delight In The Details” but due to space limitations the inside was not able to be featured. So as with The Garden Fairy mini album I posted yesterday, I thought I would share the inside of this album with you too.
This album has photos of my great great aunts Minnie and Amanda and uncles Albert and Stephen along with their parents, my great great grandmother Rebecca Hinkle, grandfather Enoch Childers and his brother Jesse. Oh and these are the family members who lived in the old house I love going into on my aunt’s property in Buckhannon, WV. The swing Albert Childers is sitting in still hangs in the same spot today.
I removed all but two of the pages that come with the Maya Road 5 x 7 album and replaced those I took out with pages from different Maya Road Coaster Albums. I painted the album and each of the pages using a soft yellow then applied old book pages and cream felt I accented with simple hand stitching and cream felt flowers.
This album turned out to be one of my most treasured albums. Even though it took me working on it all day every day for an entire week to get it completed I like the simple feel the album has and how it features each family photo.
The old family homestead and Albert’s swing.
I will always love this place and look forward to going back each summer.
