I posted these images last year at Halloween,
but I wanted to share them again this year...
a little spooky family memorabilia.
This is an invitation that my paternal grandfather
made for a surprise Halloween Birthday Party for my grandmother in 1926.
These are their engagement photos from around 1906.
He was a printer, so I have several pieces of his work.
I love the little pumpkin and black cat graphic that he included.
My paternal grandmother, Irma, was born on Halloween,
sometime in the late 1880's or early 1890's.
She was around 40 when my dad was born in 1929.
Halloween was always a special event when she was alive,
so I have a little childhood nostalgia for the holiday.
I'm joining Joan's Party with this very authentic
piece of Vintage Halloween ephemera.
Be sure and have fun with the other partiers at

Have a fun weekend!
