Welcome to my first post for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I was invited by Terri from https://terriwebsterschrandt.wordpress.com/ to participate in this blog series.
The theme for my challenge is going to be “Inheriting my Grandparent’s crap” 🙂
I suspect this photo was taken in the 1960s. Featuring my Grandad (who’s war diary I have been blogging), my Grandmother and my aunt Trish, who likely was in her late teens or early twenties.
On the bookcase behind my Gran is a photo in a frame – my Dad. I’m guessing he had probably left New Zealand to go on his 6 month visit to the UK … which lasted 9 years. Next to the photo is the most spectacularly hideous vase hidden under a mass of what were most likely plastic flowers.
So spectacularly revolting is the vase, that I haven’t had the heart to get rid of it. Lets face it, who would want it?
I also have the bookcase which I love, its got groovy Art Deco style feet.
I don’t usually have the vase sitting on the bookcase but felt it needed to be done for the recreation of the scene in this instance 🙂
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.
Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
I would like to invite John from Cryptic Garland to join this challenge. As I said, it is totally up to each individual to accept whether they wish to participate.
