TAKE A WORD


CHILDHOOD

Marie has chosen CHILDHOOD as our word for inspiration this week and that made me think of how childhoods were often harsh in years gone by.  This is a photograph of my maternal grandfather, Leonard .....

I'm so late this week, but I got there in the end.

Credit to CAJoline for the stacked pages and to Bluesse for the chair.  Everything else is my own.

Thank you for looking.
