My Granny Collage


I think my Grandmother's picture would be happier here.
I pulled a few more of her things together.
Her Christening bonnet,
Small picture of her mother.
A sweet picture of her as a little girl.
And the gloves that I remember.
She would stroke my hand in church with them on.
I guess it took the wiggle out of a me.

What a great memory. I love the frame too. I would like to do something like that with some of my mom's things.
I hope you are doing well.

The collage was a great idea. I sent you an email but my computer has been acting funny lately or maybe it's me but I wondered if you got it.
Take care,
Carolyn

What a great memory. Instead of being tucked in a drawer, they're where you can always remember them.

Hi Becky,
What a great collage and good memories! I love the outfit she's wearing in the previous post and it is too bad that she didn't keep the dress and how about the house's that were in the background of the pic! Too bad you don't have that too (;
