I'm Sharing with
Let''s All Go Visit With Jann
|L-R Rachel Lee And Marion Albert Mobley|
First cousin Beverley Turner White thinks she has the original- Thank you for sharing. Another cousin, Glenda Mobley Keil also confirms that the picture was taken at Aunt Josephine's home in Atlanta. I now see clearly the strong resemblance between Grandma and Aunt Lila Mae and would be willing to wager real money on this....Aunt Josephine bought Grandma a new dress didn't she? Look at that shiny, fabric and "store bought" looking dress!
We know our grandparents did not leave home [south Georgia] often nor did they have pictures taken often, This makes us doubly thankful that their daughter, Josephine did take pictures everywhere she went then in later years before she died at 94 yrs old she began to generously share copies of those many pictures with all of us..her nieces & nephews. Thanks a million Aunt Josephine.
Another thing our Aunt Josephine shared faithfully was the GOSPEL written all over the envelopes of the hundreds of cards and letters she mailed to us and many others. When we opened mail from her one could not miss the bold Bible verses on the envelopes!!!

I now wear the watch
and the wedding band-
The cane still hangs on the head of our bed.
The Rocking Chair is empty~
|Springtime or Summertime? This scene was set in March but when one lives in the Southeastern U.S. [Alabama] there is often little difference in Spring and Summer. The season is easy to identify in pictures by the flowers being used. The Bridal Wreath's blooming branches come in March at our house and it's easy to be inspired by their incredible beauty. My only problem with them is they don't last long enough. My repeated observation when they are in full bloom is: "We need a Wedding " ...to properly show them off.|

|My friend is also drawn to all things natural, worn, flawed, cracked or rusty. That makes two of us! Not everyone can appreciate an old rusty gate. Mine traveled with us from Texas to Alabama and is now located beside my front yard arbor with a collection of broken tea cups buried at the base. My friend relishes in creating her own unique works of art from vintage or used, less than perfect treasures of all kinds...."things that have had a life." SDP|
