Loving memories




Wishing you all a wonderful time this Valentine's weekend




I'm off to join one of my favourite bloggers, the gorgeous Laurie, from Bargain Hunting with Laurie in the U.S.




It's her first ever blog party and there are already 90 guests, come along and join in. I hope to see you there.

and I dedicate this Valentine's weekend to my beautiful Aunt, Mary who died this week,
I have been told my whole life that I was just like her, I looked like her and I do everything just like her and even today my youngest brother David and my cousins still call me Aunt Mary.
I am very proud to say that I am glad that I'm like her, she was a wonderful and loving woman, a ballet dancer and a incredible mother. This illustration above is of my Aunt Mary whilst she was working in Sydney in the 50's when she was in her 20's. Yes we do look alike, and even our office is similar and I too wear my pearls everyday.
....and if you look closely you will notice that she is reading a fashion magazine (probably Vogue) whilst at work, yes we really were alike.
