  10. Very beautiful piece, Marie. The two girls look so much alike. If you inherited that side's looks, you must be a beauty yourself. I love that you've used your personal photos. Really special.

  12. This is lovely, Marie! I thought the beads were real, and on top of the picture of your Mother and Aunt. FYI: I figured out what you meant about the thumbnail and blogs. Now this one of yours appears on my blog. :-) I'm going to put another toe in the water now, and add a few blogs to follow.
