The words, embellishments and charms all relate to things about her ..
Sewing words and phrases, doily lace stencil resembling the crochet she used to do, she liked a bit of bling, she loved flowers, she always had a pot of tea on the go, she could always find a safety pin when you needed one' and she was clever (the book charm) - she passed her exams to attend Grammer School in 1911 but her parents couldn't afford for her to go - her head mistress even offered to fund her uniform but it was still too much money and she never got there - her mother then died when she was 13 and she went into 'service' for her cousin who seems to have managed to marry 'well' ... this is a photograph of my Nan with her young charge aged about 14 ...
My Nan was the best - I miss her.
I am also entering this for The Artistic Stampers embossing/texture challenge
And Simonsaysstamp big stamp challenge (hard to see but I have used this gorgeous background stamp all over the distress inks for added texture)
