One Hunderd years ago

Perhaps they are not really stars in the sky...
....perhaps they are openings in the heavens where our loved
 ones shine down to let us know they are happy.

Last picture taken of us together on her 90th birthday.
A very special mother that was born on
11-12-1911

  2. What wonderful photos to have and cherish. Though, really, I guess it is the memories that are so important. Glad you rediscovered fabric and thread!

  3. I just love pictures like the 4 generation ones. They are so special when it comes to remembering our mothers and grandmothers. Your mother and you, look like you have a special bond, aren't memories so important?

  6. Love the old photo as well as the more recent one. (One of my aunts was born in 1911 too.) I think that like musical talent, talent for creating with textiles can be in our genes!

  8. Thank you for sharing that beautiful picture of all the lovely women who have gone on before us!
    Your Mother was a dear sweet woman who taught you
    how to live in the world of fabric and to love
    other's. She was indeed a woman who was ahead of
    her time and a business woman, too. How blessed we are to have such women in our lives, our Mother's. Love ya Carolyn. PS: It was my pleasure to have known her. And a Happy Birthday
    to you, too.

  9. Family photos, especially multi generational ones, are truly treasures close to our hearts. You chose a couple very special ones. What a special heritage you have, with the ladies of your family spending time with fabrics and design. Thank you for sharing them.
