I've been meaning to add a post like this for a while now. My scanning concentration is pathetic, so i've only added two pictures for now, expect more soon.
Old family photographs captivate me like nothing else, whether they belong to my own family, friends or a mystery stranger, i can't help but gaze at them for hours, thinking up little stories in my head about the scenes captured.
Below are two images of my Grandad, Grandma and Mother.
My Mum's side of the family are all from Cyprus and were quickly forced out of the country when the Turks invaded in the early 1960s, leaving behind most of their belongings; Possibly one of the reasons as to why i love these pictures so much is the fact that not many of them survived.
Having a) never visited Cyprus myself, and b) never meeting my Grandad, photographs of my mum growing up have always intrigued me. The below image is one of my favourite photographs that i own, taking pride of place on my mantle shelf.
Above is my beautiful Grandma Dolly.
I think she will remain my most cherished person while breath enters my body.
Over the weekend a very welcome addition to the ruby blue toy family entered the store, looking pretty darn neat in the process. I can't wait to hear him sing all day long. I think we're going to be the best of friends :)
In other news, come and take a look at all the yummy new men's autumn/winter wear. There are lots of jumpers, shirts and scarves to keep you toasty warm.
With still more to come, i'm sure you'll find something to wrap around you.
Ruby Blue first opened it's doors in late 2007 and has been providing the beatiues of Carlisle with jurassic threads ever since.
In 2011 we relocated and downsized, joining the Carlisle Antique Center family. Come and say hello!
