My Second Blog Book

This time I ordered a book of my Pieces of the Past blog from it's inception in July of 2009 until the end of the year. Again, I was very pleased with the outcome and it came very quickly. An added little bit of whimsy is the word "Rome" right beneath the cover picture of my mother, Nan Pearce. That, of course, is the name of the little town I grew up in. The various other names on the cover and back cover such as Paris and Greece, however, have no meaning! But Rome is good!

The pictures are not always where they actually should be, but at least they are there and so are the comments that were made. Not a lot of them, but I do enjoy it when someone leaves me a few words. These two pages contain pictures of both sides of my family - Dad's and Mom's.

A couple more pages - I find myself really enjoying looking back through them and I rather enjoy what I have written. I was the editor of the school paper one year and also the yearbook so I think I have always loved working in those areas. Doing the book on our family history and my cookbook was also a lot of fun. Maybe in the next life I will be the editor of a magazine like Martha Stewart or Oprah - do you think? Probably not.
If you haven't ever looked at my other blog of old family pictures and think you might like it, the link is http://piecesofthepast-funoldhag.blogspot.com/ I'd love to have you stop by. (Click to enlarge)

Boy that will make a wonderful keepsake for the family, you have really detailed the pictures and that is so very important. Great job, buddy!! Are you snuggled in for the night, I just finished the dishes from a homemade pot of soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. A nice winter supper.

Your book will be treasured for years by your granddaughters. A family history should be recorded and saved for future generations.
