So many stories in family albums. Here we were, with our married life before us. Twenty-two years and two children later, he died in September of 1979, and I was a widow at 45. Memories are gossamer things that waft through our thoughts at unexpected times, and loved ones long gone return to visit in our dreams. Thank you for visiting this page in my album.
I can never resist the urge to make up quirky author's names to go with book titles, so I chose to do a book cover. I hope you enjoy my play on words! Image and cover design googled, and greatly altered. Building credit to Finecrafted Designs.
How well I remember garter belts and girdles, and stockings with seams. Just putting them on and getting the seams straight was a major achievement. I'm SO glad those days are gone for good! Vintage ad was googled, with overlay by L. Bavin. The larger image was extracted from a vintage ad. Thanks for stopping by!
I went for stark simplicity and the beautiful Elizabeth Taylor for this week's challenge of black and white. Thanks to Natalie Designs for the poppy, and L Bavin for the script overlay, and to my blog friends for visiting!
The lyrics are from the Cat Stevens song "Morning Has Broken", and they evoke in me memories of beautiful sunrises over green fields and the sound of morning bird calls....pleasant memories of days long gone. Thanks for your visit. Your comments are much appreciated!
A walk through Crown Hill Cemetery in my city of Indianapolis brings one past many stone angels who've been standing guard for years. Many, like this one, are weathered by time but beautiful still, a reminder of times long past and loved ones long gone.
