TAKE A WORD


MEMORIES

This week Deann is our guest host at Take a Word and she has chosen MEMORIES as our word for inspiration.

After much consideration I thought family memories might be a way to go and I got out my box(es) of old family photos.

Here are some very happy memories of our children and grandchildren (now all grown up) our parents, grandparents and great grandparents.  I am so lucky, not only to have the memories but also the photographs to show them off.

Thanks, Deann.

Thank you for looking.

You are lucky indeed, I have very few photos of my parents and grandparents. This is very touchy and you sure have a lovely family.

This is lovely ... I'm not very good at incorporating photographs of my family into my collages but I really like this.

What a superbly monumental artpiece! I can only imagine the work that has gone into it - not to mention your fantastic imagination to create a picture that is so beautifully done and so touching. A standing ovation from Oz, Ann.
