I love this photograph of my MIL when she was a girl in the early 1920s (with her mother and siblings); she is the one on the left. Its a delightful composition - although a litttle precarious I suspect! She would have been 89 next month but sadly she died yesterday from heart and kidney failure - she had been in hospital for over 6 weeks.
So once again, in the space of only 2 months, my DH and I are grieving the loss of a parent and organising another funeral. But at the same time we are aware of how lucky we are that our parents both lived long and happy lives.
At the weekend we made this box between us (DH cut up the MDF and I glued it together). Today I am going to gesso it ready for decoration. It has a very special purpose.....I wonder if you can guess what its for. Maybe you need a clue?
Mmmmmm....... its not very conventional........and you might possibly be a little shocked when I tell you. Or maybe not? :-)
As you can see, its over 12" tall.
What do you think...........?
