Hi Crystal MaryHow nice to meet someone from this area...thank you for dropping by today..Happy days
I wasn't yet a follower when you first posted this, Delwyn, but I have read all of your previous posts. Your grandmother was both someone to love and admire! I feel you're very similar....Wanda♥
Hi wandaI do have my grandmother's determination and joi de vivre and perhaps a little of her stubbornness too...oh and her love of the countryside, of nature, she would always pick wild mint or yellow broom when we went on or many country picnics to deserted river banks...and she sang as she wandered along...she also loved to tell a tale...HMMMMM many likenesses I see...Happy days
Hi friendsyou will find some comments about sepia Saturday here and some others at the original posting site...If you are like me you enjoy the threads of commentary from the readers and their interesting comments and queries. So I suggest you look in both places...Happy days to you all
delwyn - i am not at all surprised to read of your heritage. it's something that catches me off gurard sometimes when i find myself inside my grandma or grandad's experiencing and wish that i could tell them what i have done and who i am. not to brag as much as to say thankyou for opening the doors, for pulling back the curtains. steven
Delwyn, it's amazing how much you look like your gorgeous grandmother! Lovely image you created.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving such a nice comment! I have views of Pink cherry tree blossoms up today.I enjoyed clicking on your link and reading your grandmother's story, Delwyn. She was a very admirable, and a pretty woman.
I love the beautiful collage with their picture...two beautiful girls! You inherited some stubborness...haha...I think I did, too! :)
You have such a beautiful blog Delwyn, your awesome personality really shines through...I've got a blog award to give you on my blog if you'd like it.
What an amazing story. A strong, intelligent, wonderful woman. I think you look very much like her, and it seems you have inherited much of her spirit, too.
Hi NanajoIt would be a good legacy to have inherited, no doubt I have some of her traits...good and bad!Happy days
Hi Willowdo you think we are that alike...Happy days

Hi BetsyI had a time where I made collages every day like this card. Lately I have been collaging journals ready to write in...I tend to get on a roll...and it sweeps me along...happy days
What a strong and wonderful presence to have in your life, Delwyn.
thank you Nancy she was...she told a great story too and loved an audience...I think she is singing for my Father now...happy days
Beautiful image & a wonderful biography of your grandmother--she must have been a great inspiration!
Hi Johnwelcome to downunder, it is nice to have you call in...My GMother was bigger than life...a real mentor...Happy days
Fabulous card and fabulous story (yes I followed the link back to the original piece). I remember women like your grandmother from the British Labour movement in the sixties and seventies. Women with such a big and generous vision, women who attracted support for their beliefs and not because of some public relations exercise.
Hi Alanthis is a good point that you have made...the issues were much greater than the hype and the person was charismatic enough to carry the mission on behalf of all the little people. They placed great faith in the advocate and also gave them a grave responsibility. thanks for your thoughtful commentsHappy days
