Friday Photo Flashback Friday & Aloha Friday & any others I find.

This was my very first house that I bought back in 1978.  It was a handyman special and we were fixing it up... let me rephrase that, "I WAS" Fixing it up cux my "X" was LAZY!  This is as close as I ever came to a fireplace.  I love them.  This was painted white and boarded up.  I chipped off the paint with a little hammer and took down the boards and found BOOKCASES, woo hoo!  I made doors and was Zbricking the front.  It looked awesome when I was done, but don't h ave that picture sorry.

This is my oldest son, Mom and my oldest daughter.  I would say it's approximately 1975/76 standing by my old junk car which I have no idea what kind nor the year, and it's out in front of my Mom's house in Oaklawn, IL.  She loved her grandbabies sooooooo much!

 Alicia at More than Words started "Friday Photo Flashback". I'm having a blast & you can too! Dig out your photo album! So everyone stop by Alicia's and hook up with her after you pull out your old pictures to share with us.
This is taken in Chicago & it's my Mom walking up to my Gramma's house (Dad's side) and the year is 1943.

We're not doing much of anything this weekend I don't think.  We might go on a picnic with some old friends, but maybe we're staying home to finish staining the front porch, cleaning out the garage and getting ready for next week's rockin' costume party!  Wanna come?  Between 3 & 4 at my house.  BYOB and bring a dish to pass!  See you then!  Woo Hoo!

My question is:   See under Flashback Friday where I started Z-Bricking my fireplace.  How do you think that would look on one-wall in my office?

This house too has been a project from the beginning (12 yrs. ago), and also a handyman special.  We have remodeled most of the house except for our office.  We just haven't focused on it, but we did come up with this idea, but just not sure that's why we've been thinking about it for over a year.  LOL

Once upon a time, I had a lazy ex, too! :) Love the Z-Bricking, I think you should do that on one wall of your office - is there a fireplace there, or can you add one of those? :) Have a great weekend, Marie! :)

Awaiting the remnants of Isaac this weekend. Funny, I looked at those pictures and knew they were from the Chicago area before reading on.

Have a great weekend!

I think that would look great in your office! :)

I think that would definitely add some dimension to your office space! :)

I've always wanted to get a fixer upper-It just seems like fun (but definitely a lot of hard work)!

You know how much I love your old family photos, especially the ones of your mom and your kids when they were little.
