Send in Your Old Christmas Photos!

The holidays are about giving back, so let me give you some link love and holiday cheer. Send me your old Christmas photos! You know the ones - the "I can't believe I wore that" or even retro photos of your parents or grandparents enjoying the holidays.

If you would like to join in, please send the following to martini.diana@gmail.com by December 22nd:

- Old Christmas Photo (only one please)
- Your name
- Optional: blog web address/personal website/ etsy site link
- Optional: Short sentence about your favorite tradition during the holidays.

If you don't have an old photo to share, but would like to participate then send a photo of your Christmas decor (your tree, mantle, favorite ornament) and feel free to include a sentence about your favorite holiday tradition.

I'll be posting ALL of your photos and links during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I can't wait to spread some holiday link love and see what photos come rolling in!

(Oh and my Mom is going to kill me! The photo is of her back in the day with a very creepy looking Santa Claus!)

Diana this is a brilliant idea! I'll do some digging and scan something and send (I assume you want it digitally) - I'm sure I've got something that looks very 1970s.

Yeah I know scanning is a pain, but I need them digital - thanks so much!

I'm not sure I could share the photo of myself in my red/white/blue check leisure "suit" I wore when sitting on Santa's lap...eesh...what was my mother thinking! Not to mention the huge glasses and frizzy hair. I was a nightmare. I think this is enough of a "visual" for everyone :)

Brilliant idea of sharing all the photos!
