Imagine a Queen
The photo in this collage is one of a few that I have of my grandmother when she was young, at age 16 in 1929. Love the flapper 'do. I remember her telling me how that hairdo was achieved, something about hot irons to create each wave and it took quite a long time (her hair was naturally very straight). I've always wished I could have known my grandparents when they were young people. Maybe someday I'll have a grandchild who will wonder what I was like when I was young? Hmmmm....anyway, my grandma had lots of queen-like qualities, so here I imagine her a queen. The bits of paper doily used on the collage belonged to her and I try to use them wisely.
