More inspiration from the photo pile...

Yet another single photo in the "what to do - what to do" pile. I love it though...and a great story to go with it. That's my grandmother (my inner circle knows that's my "mom", she raised me since I was a baby). This photo was taken at the Doniphan County Fair Grounds in 1921 for some kind of spring festival...she was their princess...and...oooh, was she mad... look at that face! She loved the dress & the crown, but the seat was extremely uncomfortable. For the remainder of the festival, she was hoisted up on this thing and she couldn't play with her friends. Her mother stood behind a curtain they put up and spent the whole time with her arms up holding her, balancing her on this contraption. She remembered the pain & frustration of that day, but above all she remembered her mother's loving arms supporting her all day long. It made her feel so safe.
I need to scrapbook this weekend...

Teenagers have blogs, celebrity clubs have blogs, news agencies have blogs, businesses have blogs - even your aunt Sophie could have a blog. The wonderful thing about blogs is that there are virtually no restraints on what it could be used for. visit my blog at debt consolidation
