SEW & WW: Deja Vu


5 Minutes for Special Needs

My dad sent me some pictures a while back, and one in particular caught my eye because it reminded me so much of a picture of my twins. Here are the two pictures together... taken 46 years and 1000+ miles apart, and yet so much alike :).

My dad -- June 1959


Cuddlebug & Bearhug -- October 2005

That is so cool. You need to get those framed side by side! Great picture of the boys and of grandpa :0)

Nostalgic! I love trains like that! The ones we have here don't look like the classic trains!

Love this! I have two little train lovers!

Aloha from Hawaii...

I love pictures of old trains and old train pictures. What a neat set of pictures! They would make a neat collage in a scrapbook or framed with the year and location written underneath.

That is a very neat set of photos to have! I love finding old photos and new photos that have similarity's. Great pic!

I love old photographs revisited by the young. The time factor is so evocative.

By the way, how did you manage to make that 'everyday adventures' widget?

Best wishes

Awesome pictures! I love old photographs, especially when they are someone in our family.
Your boys are so cute!

I too want to know how you made your cute little 'everyday adventure' button?

wow the similarity is quite uncanny! They could have been triplets but with a twilight zone effect, your dad will be in black and white while your twins will be in colors! :) Trains are good! I grew up riding them and loved it!

Love old family photos. How neat.

BTW, there is a code up for a clearer new SEW button on the link to us page of 5M4SN. I goofed the first one.

Great pictures of the boys and their toys, big toys.

awesome pictures!! Frame worthy for sure

Leah on September 10, 2008 at 10:29 PM said...

How wonderful! You should frame those next to each other!

Debbie Yost on September 10, 2008 at 11:33 PM said...

Wow! I love it. I bet the twins loved the train!

EXCELLENT shot! I love the one of your dad! Thanks for sharing with us!

@maddy and happycfam - I made the button using MS Photodraw, and found the instructions for the "grab my button" widget at "What's that Smell?" Here's the link:
