My mom when she was 18

This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom because when I was that age, I looked very much like her. I am going to have one of these printed up as we gave my dad the original back after copying them. I am pushing the bad memories into the back of my mind and just cherishing the good ones and all the things that she did teach me. I just noticed the black eye and hope that's not one her dad put there---I'll just say she fell off one of the horses.

I am hoping I get back in the crafting mood---I'm just drained right now, but I know it will get easier with time. I do have to work on an altered canvas for my niece, so hopefully I will have something crafty to post. Hope you all have a great day. Hugs, Pat

Nettie, thank you. I really like this picture. I have some others of her with her twin that I will post, but I can tell them apart.

I love this picture. Treasure it and any others you may have.

What a wonderful idea. I love in the movie "The Family Stone" where the girlfriend has a photo of the Mother blown up for each family member and it was a photo of the Mother when she was pregnant with one of her children.
