This is the last of four layouts that I created during my long scrappy weekend, again using the October kit from Très Jolie. The two women in the photo are mother and daughter, probably in the early 1940’s. They were neighbors of my father’s family and later mine; that house in the background is where I grew up.
I never knew the younger woman; she died in an accident in 1945, a year before I was born. I did know the older woman and her husband, using the courtesy titles of “Aunt” Cora and “Uncle” John. They actually served as surrogate grandparents; as a toddler and beyond, I was always welcome in their house for cookies and conversation.
