Follow Friday: This Week’s Favorite Finds

Another week bites the dust!  It seems like we were busy all week – Girl Scouts, a field trip to a Texas ranch, lunch at a friend’s house, a trip to the art museum, sangria with the gals down the street, school work (of course), and a couple of meetings.  My husband is begging for a quiet weekend without any parties or functions of any kind.  I think that I could use that too!

  • I”ve enjoyed all of the diary entries on Sheryl’s site – A Hundred Years Ago.  I especially enjoyed Mother’s 49th Birthday- She’s Getting Old.  I really, really, really, really, really wish that I had a diary belonging to one of my ancestors.  Maybe one is molding away in some musty attic somewhere.  I just hope that someday it makes its way into my hands.
  • Oh my goodness.  You need to go read Karen’s posts  at Ancestor Soup about the ugliest baby doll ever.  I would be frightened to carry this around as a kid!  Here are part one and part two of the ugly baby story.:)
  • The August Scanfest will take place on August 28th from 11-2 Pacific time over at AnceStories.  I still have yet to join in on one of these, but I really want to!!
  • On August 31st there is a Postcard Bonanza over at Are You My Cousin?  I have one I am planning on sharing.:)
  • Happy Blogiversary to Marian over at the other Climbing My Family Tree – 3 great years of posts!  And Cheryl over at Heritage Happens is celebrating 3 years also!  Jo over at Images Past also celebrated a blogiversary last week.  Congrats to you all!
  • Don’t miss the Geneabloggers Radio “Back to School” special tonight!!  It looks like it’s going to be a great one.
  • I loved Susan’s post over at Nolichucky Roots entitled For one to be named later.  We have some different names, but I don’t know that I have anybody in my family actually named a number!

And a picture from my week:

    Thanks Jen! We’ve been teasing/torturing my daughter-in-law for months with all the permutations of our worst names.

    I love your photograph this week. I’m a museum junkie and this captures how I feel when I’m before a painting worth sitting with.ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the nice comments about A Hundred Years Ago. I’m very fortunate to have my grandmother’s diary.ReplyCancel

    Hi Jen!

    Thank you for mentioning my Heritage Happens 3 year blogiversary, I really appreciate it! One small correction though, this blog is my blog, not Tonia’s. :-) Thanks again!ReplyCancel

    Sorry Cheryl! That’s what happens when I try to write a post past my bedtime. :)ReplyCancel
