vintage photo friday

i love looking at vintage photographs :: they appear to tell a story- a different story for each set of eyes laid upon them. and it's also interesting {and fun} to get a sense of the style & fashion of the day.
so, for the next several fridays, i will be sharing vintage photos of my family right here on the blog. these portraits are of my grandmother, circa late 1940's. these were taken in germany, right after WWII, an era during which my grandmother and her family experienced many hardships. in these photos, however, she looks happy :: i imagine she had just met my grandfather and was a young german woman in love with an american soldier. ah, how romantic.
more vintage photos next friday! have a wonderful weekend!
