Special Discovery

03 Aug

For some time I’ve been thinking I need to clean up the frame of a sweet, hand coloured photo of me at three or  four years old, in a smocked dress made by my Mum. It’s a favourite and last week I took the photo out of the frame. 

Behind the photo of me, I found two more very special photos of my Mum and Dad in their twenties I am guessing.  I had no idea they were there! Aren’t they just the most beautiful couple?

My Mum, Cicely H M Wiseman nee Richards

My Dad. David Wiseman

      So lovely – it’s as if they’ve been there looking after me for all that time. 🙂

    What a wonderful find! Beautiful photos of your parents. I’m guessing you will need a special frame for them now!

      Yes, I shall have to think of a way to display all three together. They are each A4 so quite big! 🙂

      Thank you. You are right and I bet my Dad, a writer, would have had a story to tell if he were still around. 🙂

      Thank you. Sometimes I see her as I pass by the big mirror in the hall! 🙂
