Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: Day One — The Hideous Vase

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” 🙂


 

My beautiful picture

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.

  1. OK, you’re on. So you’d better make it clear. I make up a story or a poem etc about that vase. Then tomorrow do I choose a photo or do post a photo tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow (as Will said) .If the rules are flexible, I would like you to post the pics so I don’t have any set agenda. And do I nominate someone else each day or only at the end of day one? (As wife wife would say, “Stop being a doddering old fool and just get on with it!”
