*Christmas 1984*

'Seems like so long ago. My daughter Amanda was born in June of 1984, so she was just six months old on her first Christmas. In the photo above, towards the center of the tree, is a little round silver metal ornament with a photo of Amanda under our Christmas tree on 25th December, 1984. The ornament came with a silver hanging loop, but I changed it to a piece of red and green plaid homespun. Back then, the film was 110 or 126, so there was no digital quality. 'Any of you remember that old-timey film? Regardless, I still cherish this photo. The little silver frame was a real thrifty find at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, making it cost just $2.00. So, this is also my post for Thrifty Thursday. Do any of you put photos in ornaments?
