Mums frame

Have been a bit busy today ... making a memory frame for my dear Mum ...
her maiden name was Young ... so I made her a frame that says "when I was young" with some old photos of her and her twin sister ...

hope she likes it ... its the things from the past that she takes more interest in ... as we know people with dementia live in the past ...

I really enjoyed making it ... will be taking it in over the weekend ...

ooooo so disappointed in how it has scanned ...  you cant see the edges well but it is all edged in lace
anyway you get the gist ... oh and it has a super large gold frame

thank you for stopping by ... have a great weekend everybody xx
