I once asked my mother to tell me about herself - I gave her the book "My Mother Before Me" (if I recall correctly) and asked her to fill in some of the "blanks."
This was in 1983, and I was in my early 30's (uh oh, I really didn't want you to know how old I am) and the stories she told me got tucked away somewhere in my memory.
I look at the pictures of she and her friends/boyfriends and think "who is this guy anyway? "
What really caught my eye were the beautiful greeting cards she received in the 1930's. The colors, the textures, the shapes...I was struck by the number of cards that depicted Scottish Terriers..who doesn't love them, and oh, by the way, we've had 4 of them!
I've done a lot of research, been to quite a few flea markets to collect vintage cards, and along the way have gotten lost on the internet. So many fabulous places to explore in cyber world.
So, here it is. If anyone finds this blog, I'd have to say that's pretty amazing.
I'm going to try and tell stories in the blog. I'll be going off on a lot of tangents. I'm going to insert names of interesting websites...wherever whimsy leads me.
Hope to see you soon.
