Mosaic Monday - vintage horses part II

(click image to enlarge)

I discovered quite the plethora of family photos that feature horses in my project the last couple weeks. I guess when you have a weird generation gap (like how most of my first cousins are nearly twice my age) you end up with lots of old photos that don't seem that old to you.

I also discovered I am a country girl way back to my roots! :)

Somewhere in that top left photo is my great grandpa Pete driving group of wagons loaded down with bags of wool. (yes sir, yes sir, three bags full) to Shaniko - now a "ghost town" - that was once called the "wool capital of the world."

The top right photo is my paternal grandmother.

Bottom right photo is my maternal great grandfather and one of his draft horses (the same draft horses that my grandpa was racing in last week's mosaic photo).

Bottom left photo is my maternal grandparents and my three uncles.

Be sure to visit Little Red House and see all the beautiful mosaics!

Your grandmother looks awesome in that hat and her riding chaps. Nice idea for a mosaic!

Such wonderful photos! I have a really fun photo of my mom when she was a girl in cowboy boots and a cowboy hat pretending to be Annie Oakley. :)

What fabulous pix to have of your family, how great to be able to see what their lives were like.

I love old family photo's. I have been lucky enough to be the caretaker of my grandparents and my parents photo's now that they are gone. I count it as a privilege and kind of a duty - to be able to get them into a format where I can share them with my siblings and cousins.

Like your mosaic!
