an other great-grandmother
My mother always spoke very warmth about her.
On the fabric page a photo of her when she was 18, I think. Most of the girls in the northwest part of the Netherlands got the gold or silver jewelery for the traditional cap when the became an official member of the church. I have chosen fabrics on both pages from the era she lived.
The lace on the right page is original handmade bobbin-lace which was used for the cap.
On the left page the poem she wrote in my mothers poetry album.
Below a photo taken in the fields with her husband and two of her sons.
The photo is taken in 1928, my great-grandmother was 64 years old than.
Strange enough she looks older than I am now and I am 69!
