What a great idea and it's a beautiful book...well done!
THIS is awesome!! i love your vintage stuff..you rock it all the time ;)
Oh, Lynn! This is sooooo beautiful! And you did that whole book this week? Sheesh! Way to go - it's a great idea. I never thought of creating a separate book for a family member's letters or journals. Duh! I love the title.
What an absolute treasure Lynn!! This is just stunning and so cool that you have the letter!
A family heirloom for sure!
Oh, this is perfect and what a great way to remember her handwriting and include some of her letters. I loved reading the letter to Pascale. Her description made me feel like I was there with her, watching the parade. This is a beautiful mini-album and definitely a family treasure.
This is totally amazing Lynn! What a neat, neat, neat idea. I love that you also included the little sayings that your Aunt Ida said. I'm definitely going to use this for inspiration for something similar about my mom. I hear so many of her little idioms and songs in my head.

this challenge was about handwriting, letter writing, etc. i've wanted to do this book for a long time. it's a collection of my great grandmother's handwriting, about sayings that caught her fancy, a little day runner she kept, and even part of the family line written down by her and an envelope that doesn't have the original letter (too BIG) but was written to a niece in alaska, which is where the title for the book came. her closing in the letter. there is another letter included to a “pascale” no one can identify but its beautifully written. doesn't get any better than this. this is a mix of kenner road and bad girl kit. loved the paper. i'd like to think that it was so her. Here is her letter to Pascale: My Dear Pascale= Am thinking of home and visioning the rush and commotion for which this day has ben and snide still is the supreme special day of year. The circle market is gay with nature's beautiful wild flowers and florists hot house potted products - they hurry and scurry - the crowded buses - the martial music of the bands - the attractive high stepping majorettes. The viewing spots where the tall people have the front places and the small people like me have the rear stands and are obliged to stretch their necks to the limit in vain attempt to see the great parade in steeps of precision, coming down Northampton street with the small members of the family along side with daddy. (it ends there = written Memorial Day May 30 1952.
