This was my Grandma's perfume bottle and handkerchief. My sister found the pair and thought I would like to take pictures of them. She was right.
Twenty years later, memories of Grandma still put a smile on my face. Each time I drink pop from a glass and the fizz hits my nose I think of her, because pop was a special treat only at Grandma's house. Playing croquet is another time I think of Grandma, I learned to play in her backyard. We made oranges with cloves stuck in them one Christmas, and now they always remind me of grandma too. I hope someday, in the very distant future, I have a grandchild to make memories with...
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I enjoyed my Christmas with family, the break always goes so fast. We did not have a white Christmas, but this morning I woke up to about 4 inches of snow on the ground. School is cancelled and my daughter gets to sleep in, so much for getting back in the routine of things. I will have to venture out with my camera later to capture what winter has created for us.
Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. My images were processed in Lightroom using Kim's preset prairie and in PS Elements using her textures waterfront7_magic and gift.
Thank you for stopping by!!
Have a great week!!
