MY IDOLS: MY GRANDPARENTS


Every 15th of each month, the blog Expresso da Linha, from Portugal and Varal de Idéias, from Brazil, set a Collective Blogging with a theme or a question. This current theme is My Idol. Come to join us clicking on Mister Linky.


My grandmother Rita and my grandfather Felício were my role models, my idols. They were lovely and adorable person. We was very close and we loved each other so much. Ever since I can remember, both had always been there for me and they were my inspiration. They both were talented teachers, loved each other so much, had four childrens and also they were dedicated parents and grandparents. My grandmother died at the age of 88 and my grandfather at the age of 96. They were truly a remarkable human being. This post is my homage to them.


My grandfather Felício.


My grandmother Rita. Both were parents of my mother.

  2. What a lovely tribute to your grandparents. You were lucky to have them with you for such a long time and they as well, to have you cherish their memories.

  4. Que linda homenagem, Sonia! As fotos antigas adicionaram um charme especial, como tua avó era bonita e teu avô cercado por estes objetos do cotidiano, parecem que nos transportam no tempo.
    Beijos e parabéns!

  5. Olá Sonia!
    Fiquei um pouco sentada naquele seu banco, na luz do por do Sol, lendo seus posts e admirando o seu amor por seus avós!
    Assim como você, amo meus avós...fui criada por minha avó. Infelizmente não conviví fisicamente com o meu avô...faleceu um ano antes do meu nascimento...mas, através das histórias e das suas memórias estive junto tempo suficiente para amá-lo!
    Parabéns por este post e pelo blog tão bonito!
    Um beijo.

  8. Sonia, estas fotos e os respectivos protagonistas são um verdadeiro deslumbramento. Felicito-a por conservar e partilhar esses tesouros, decerto apenas ultrapassados pelas suas próprias memórias.
    Bjs.

  10. Sonia, eu quase nao tive contato com meus avós.

    Por parte do meu pai, já nao existiam mais e por parte da minha mae, eles moravam em um outro Estado.

    Mas tenho uma ótima lembranca das cocadas que meu avô fazia para vendê-las. Eram deliciosas, nunca mais me esqueci disso.

    Eu adoro fotografias antigas. Tem um sabor de tempos calmos, vividos,...

    Um abraco e bom fim de semana

  11. Meu avô também se chamava Felício.
    Perdi-o cedo.
    Você fez-me recordá-lo com saudade.
    Obrigado por isso

  15. Sonia, querida,
    adorei o quarto do vovô Felício. Já a vovó Rita ... você parece muito com ela, né, não!?
    Pensei em entrar na Tertúlia de hoje, mas o tempo anda escasso por aqui. Também colocaria minha avó entre meus ídolos. Vô e vó são as melhores coisas de nossas infâncias. :))))
    Beijos e bom domingo!

  19. Sonia, to be begin with, thank you for your lovely comments on my blog and I'm so glad you found it! This is a lovely tribute to your grandparents and I love the photos! Your grandmother was a very beautiful lady. I know you must have many beautiful and loving memories of them both.

  20. Sônia, já tinha lhe falado por mail o quanto amo estas fotos, estes registros. Que coisa maravilhosa! Quando a mãe de minha mãe morreu, dividiram a caixa de fotos que ela guardava com preciosidades sobre os pais e avós dela mesma. Agora, ninguém sabe, ninguém viu. Para mim, é parte da vida da gente que se perde ou fica, dependendo de como estas lembranças físicas são guardadas.
    Parabéns. Bela semana para vocês.
    maris.

  24. Sonia, they are a very handsome couple. Your grandfather looks very neat and trim and your grandmother looks thoughtful and kind. I can see even from old photos why they are your idols.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I LOVE old photos, there's something about them that tells a thousand story. I have my grandparents wedding photos, they are my favourite :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. I remember having seen these photos before and remember especially the one of your grandfather, maybe especially because of the decoration around him! Charming, looks rustic, but so nice!

    I think you have well chosen your idols!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now I see where you got your good looks from! They were handsome people.

    I love the toilette stand in the photo of your grandfather.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You took after your beautiful grandparents. LOVE the photos!

  29. Sonia, my dear....Google has a "translator" link so that if you wrote something in your native language, I think, we could all translate it into English.....I'm not positive of that, but I think that is correct....Whether the translations are true to the nuances of each language---Well, THAT, I do not know.
    Anyway, it's just an idea to encourage you to write about your dear beloved grandparents in more detail, my dear.

  30. I notice the man on the bench is gazing into space and the woman is talking in his ear! In Italy as in Australia!

  31. Beautiful post and love the photos of your grandparents. Your deep love and respect comes though. Love all the pictures you have here. The clothesline post is great and love the Talk..Talk shots. The sunshine pictures of your property are look so warm and inviting.
    Thanks for visiting and your comments. I took the picture of my header in Vermont. Isn't it an inviting spot? I'll be looking around here more..beautiful Sonia.

  36. Sonia,

    felizes aqueles que podem, como você, ter ÌDOLOS na própria família! Parabéns pelos SEUS! Parabéns pela participação na TERTÚLIA, e grande beijo pelo apoio de sempre!
