The Pretty Paper Boutique May Tag Swap

Marie hosted a Tag Swap on her blog - The Pretty Paper Boutique. May's theme was Vintage Lady with use of doilies and lace. I used a photo of my maternal grandmother Larissa and her sister from 1923. The two lovely ladies went to Paris to go to Finishing School to learn how to be good wives and mothers. Sadly my great aunt passed away before having a family. My grandmother was a fabulous woman who was in my life all too briefly. I have glorious memories of her. She made me a new dress every year for my birthday and I have an adorable denim mini and jacket that she made for me when I was 5! I love having these pictures of her as a beautiful young woman.
