THREE MUSES 92 - ANCESTORS
Bev has chosen Ancestors as her theme for this week at the Three Muses and that reminded me of my three great aunts (on my Father's side) who lived in a rather large house in the country. They often spent their time in London society meeting eligible young bachelors at elegant balls and dinner parties. They also hosted many country house weekends where they spent time with their guests shooting and hunting, or if the weather was inclement, playing card games or games of hide and seek in the many rooms in the vast house. Eliza and Ellen eventually settled down and married rich young husbands, but the third great aunt (whose name is never mentioned in polite society) married a different kind of man entirely and it is rumoured she ran off and joined the circus!
Credit goes to Scrapidea, CAJoline and NumbBumm, whilst the aunts and the sculpture are in the public domain and the background is my own.
Thanks Bev for a great theme.
Thank you for looking.
