Honoring the generations ~


I just finished the commissioned piece that I was working on ~
I thought you might like to take a peek!
Emily's mom gave me a few embroidered doilies and two photographs....
each one with four generations of family!!!
I had the most precious hankies that matched,
sweet old flour sack fabric for the back drop,
vintage millinery flowers and
one pretty old button.





I hope Emily's grandmother loves it!!!

I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

The idea with the sweet hankies matching perfect to the other items ,is so very beautiful, and a lovely way to display them here.
I also love the flowers you added in the corners. A WONDERFUL canvas my precious friend.
Hugs and love, Dorthe

You have done an absolutely beautiful
work of art. She will fall in love with it. Who wouldn't?

I really like the way you used the two hankies - they accented the pics in such a great way.
