Inspired by Pat's vintage family photos, I wanted to share these from my own family. I have tapes of interviewing family who are now deceased, a marriage certificate of my great grandmother, and a handwritten letter from my great great grandmother to her daughter, the same one I have the marriage certificate for. I also have 2 dressy dresses that belonged to each of them, one of which I use to wear. I love collecting these things. Typically items that many have easily discarded. In the 80's and early 90's I spent a lot of time researching my family and have a wonderful photographic history. I even have a photo of my great great great grandmother, Miranda Jackson. Since I will not be returning to work anytime soon, I hope to make some time for picking this interest back up after the first of the year.
My grandmother, Elizabeth, who loved to have a good time, dress up, smell good, the works. She taught me how to switch, ya know, how to work it! I got too much junk in the trunk now, I could hurt ma'self.
