    Just have always admired these pics since I was little and after i married and my parents moved,I asked for them,and received! The pic on the far left,in its orig. frame,is my paternal Grandmother.She died after giving birth to my twin aunts when my dad was a small boy. But I cant help but think I am alot like her for some reason.(shrug) guess I will never really know. The pic in the center is of a great great aunt somewhere in my ancestry,still researching that one,but have always loved the oval frame and shaped glass. The pic on the right is of my maternal grandparents, who I absolutely adored and admired while they were living and miss them terribly now that they are gone. All the smaller pics are in their origional paper/cardboard frames,the old ones,of various family members from both sides of my parents families.

      I'd love to see close-up photos of the larger pictures, especially the photo of your grandmother who made and painted your vase with the blue flowers.
