Ok....maybe I'm a weirdo, but I have always loved the Viewmaster! Remember those when you were a kid? I was lucky enough to inherit a vintage Viewmaster from 1949. It came from Brian's Great Aunt Helen. She was married, didn't have children, but traveled everywhere. Instead of postcards she purchased a Viewmaster reel. The reels in my possession are dated from the 40's through the 60's. I have reels from Hawaii, Canada, to New York. It's like traveling back in time. How things have changed since then.
I decided to stop hiding this box of treasures away and bring them out for people to enjoy..for us to enjoy. I bought this red lantern and put all of Aunt Helen's vacation reels inside. Here is her vintage 1949 Viewmaster, in all of its glory.
So you are probably disappointed wondering what is so "cool?" Well look below! I found a company off of
Pinterest called Image 3D, that will take your photos and put them on your VERY OWN VIEWMASTER reel!!! How cool is that?! Now I can add my family's travel photos to Aunt Helen's and continue her legacy.
I have it displayed on my end table just waiting to be viewed......quite a conversation piece right? ; )
Off to CHA Today to help set up at the JustRite booth! Can't wait to see all of my crafty friends!!
Have a great day!!!
