new find...

I just recently found this paper and had to restrain myself from buying the entire store stock.  I'm using it in some of my jewelry, but I've also saved a sheet to frame with this photograph of my grandmother.  Now I just need to get a better copy of the print and a frame...

As you know my grandma turned 90 this year, but six months prior to all the party doings she pulled from her closet shelves a photo album I had never seeing. In it there were photos of her when she was 3 years of age and all through her life.

There is so much wisdom hidden inside each photograph (one of the reasons I became a photographer two decades ago), specially those of our grandmothers.

I would not encourage to get a better image, but make a copy of the exact one for your record keeping. Get something handwritten from her to you that she may have sent at one point or the other, and along with the paper you are so crazy about make a box (from the ones you collect). Can you get a pair of earrings from her too? A photo is wonderful, but that along with something else will make your constant memory of her more memorable. Trust me.

I love my grandma beyond earthly words...that's why I only share a simple idea that perhaps may make your day shine more.
