A surprise

Will you look at this?? these are my rellies from 1877!! I recieved a packet from my mother and in it was a photo of this lovely couple, ironic really, given that I spend a good deal of time looking for and buying such photos. I really do need to head home and go for a bit of a rummage, my mother NEVER throws anything out and I feel quite faint at the thought of what's stashed away in her house!
I copied and transferred the image and just need to find those old letters given to me by Viv http://hensteethart.blogspot.com/ I can feel a match made in Heaven coming up...

Lucky you! YES! Make plans to go home soon! If she won't accept that you are going home to see her, tell our mother you are coming for the dead relatives! hee hee. Or maybe she will ship them to you a box load at a time. :)

How wonderful to make something with your very own ancestors in it! What a scrumptious photo!
