The two people in the photo, are Dans grandparents. I never got to meet him in person, as he had passed away years before I ever met Dan...but Dan's Grandma "Ida" was the most kind , amazing person ever. I used to put Wes in the stroller and walk the few blocks over to her little house and have "postum" with her , when we were first marriage. lol Oh .. I cant believe I remembered what that stuff was called, and it just came to me , as I was writing. I don't drink coffee, and I didn't really like "Postum" ,but I drank it with HER. lol I just googled it and if you have never heard of "Postum" here's what it is "POSTUM" hmmm... wonder if you can still buy it?
I used Crafty Secrets Papers , stickers and Cotton Scraps on this project.
AccuCut flower dies for the flowers I stitched on underneath.
Lots of stitching on this project.
Doesn't that paper really look like lace?
I added this to the bottom, and some pieces of vintage lace across the top.
I cant believe how lost I can get in a project like this. I spent enough time on this...but if I didn't stop myself, I could fiddle with it all day! I 'm weird that way... I have zero patients for things like standing in checkout lines, waiting for trains , stuff like that...but I could mess with little tiny details of a project like this... FOREVER! (like I'm doing brain surgery or something) lol
