Of all the albums…

Oct 14, 2011

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.
