NOW TRADED
TGIF's challenge was "oh baby" this week, which set me off with this sweet image of an Edwardian mother and baby. She is obviously so proud of her beautiful infant and I was off making up stories again ...

This baby lived to see so much - powered flight, the space race, two world wars. His mother would be astounded at the lives of modern women and how much we have (and take for granted). She might have fought for women's suffrage - and perhaps be amazed that many girls of today hardly seem to appreciate their right to vote! Yes I do know I'm rambling on ...

I made the background with a script paper and the clock face is a Cherry Pie stamp. The tape and little tag were bits and pieces I had in my collection - heaven knows where from - and the paper lace came from Lakeland. As ever, this is available to swap.
