Claudia

Claudia & Ralph.
So, my mum's aunt Claudia was the first of many children in my great grandmothers womb. ;) But I do think she was their favorite. Cause she got permission to do a great deal more than my grandmother ever did. ;) Anyway, she did get to travel a lot...& she took quite a few pictures when she was out 'n about. 
Claudia in the middle. This is supposed to be where she learned to sew. :)
I love this picture. 
Haven't a clue where this is, but it's lovely!
They knew how to have fun way back when too... ;)
"Have no clue what we where doing here." -Claudia on climbing tree's on Jeløy.
"Me with my tush up in the air." -Claudia.
Out with the girls.
This pic is just priceless. 
But I mentioned a couple of posts ago that she had this heartbreaking story. Gonna give you the short version... Well, if I remember correctly she was engaged, or was going to get engaged to this gentleman from Holland. But he actually got killed. She never got married & had a hard time talking about him. Guess that once in a lifetime Mr. Perfect comes knocking & if he's snatched from you - one way or another, it's hard to mend those thousand pieces of shattered dreams. I am in the process of figuring out the whole story...what exactly happened to him. Cause I have a picture, plus his car's license plate. :) Starting to feel like a regular Nancy Drew here! ;)
Camping! I just love that car btw!
At the beach.
She use to sew for posh ladies in Moss. Plus she did a lot of costumes for a ballet school. I still get blown away by the details in her work...& I kinda wish I'd fit into her dresses. But I will never ever get my boobs or hips into something like that. Oh well! ;)

Hei
jeg ser at den første kommentaten min ikke ble sendt...
Jeg synes det er så morsomt med gamle bilder, og huset i Nesveien kjenner jeg jo godt til da jeg selv bor i Gimlevegen 11 og min farmor bodde i nr 5.
Klem...Ellen

Hei!

Så herlig den bloggen var! :)

Har fått flere tilbakemeldinger på bildene av Blekkhuset. Utrolig kos & høre at folk har minner knyttet til det. :) Møtte en dame på Fretex som hadde lekt i hagen der. Hun husket til & med fargene på rosene og hvordan oldemoren min var. Sånt er stas. :)

Arvet noen fulle kofferter - eller små skattkammere som jeg velger & kalle dem, med bilder, div. papirer & gamle kniplinger etter noen slektninger på min mors side. Har ennå ikke fått gått igjennom alt, men det er endel fantastisk morsomme fotografier fra 1800-tallet. Bl.a. en dame med skjegg! :) Hva jeg skal gjøre med alt er jeg nå litt usikker på. Føler jo ikke helt for & legge de tilbake i koffertene.

Klem!
