My Wedding Shower. 1951.
I know this is kind of a weird picture. Its actual size is only about 2 inches square. But I’ve always liked it. It’s a picture of Grandma’s wedding shower–the centerpiece, I guess? It’s romantic that she kept the picture so long. And that she even took the picture to begin with.
The other thing that I like about this picture is that I have a glass serving platter that Grandma received as a gift at that shower. When I hold that platter and think of this picture, it makes me feel like I am really there experiencing a 21 year old Grandma at her wedding shower. It’s an indescribable link to her and to our past.
