Shannon Files….part II

Hi everyone, I’m back again, with more of the Ancestor Memory File boards I recently made.  Remember my last post here?  Well, I have more!  And someday, when I’ve got them hung on a wall finally, I will even show you a picture of that!  Lets see what we’ve got today!

The first one is of my husband’s grandmother and her family.  She is the young girl, front and center in the photo.  Baba Rose is the only way I ever knew her, so it’s very special to see (and have) photographs like this to get a glimpse into her younger life.



I included the glasses and milk bottle cap as well as an old, ornate door knob.  I don’t have any specific mementos that once belonged to her so I had to use items that “might” have been (and quite likely were) a part of their lives.


This next memory board is of my own grandparents.  I do have a number of things that belonged to them; they were meticulous in keeping everything that referenced another place and time.  That includes their boat passage tickets to Canada, a Deutschmark, their passports, a train schedule and work documents, and much more that I didn’t have room to use.  Underlying it all, is a letter written to the family who sponsored their family’s move to Canada after the war, telling about some of their feelings and experiences.shannonpihrag1

I added some mini-phrase stickers, crystal stems, a stitched flourish from my scrapbooking stash, as well as a fountain pen and watch face that are “found objects”.



This last memory board is just a collection of bits and pieces I’ve collected over the years that reflect my love of sewing and vintage sewing items.  The wood veneer dress form, wired bead floral pick, word stickers, dew drops and floral die cut, all came from my scrappy stash.  shannonsewing1



Thanks for stopping by today to see what’s new!
