SHOW & TELL FRIDAY
More participants here
This time I have something special to show you.
I was looking for a photo and stumbled over this album. It belonged to my parents and I had taken it with me when I had to empty their house, but had never really had a look into it ever since.
It is an album showing my parents in 1940 when they were not yet married but apparently spend there holidays together (what a scandal !)
I knew that my mother made little drawings from time to time when she wrote a letter to me, but I never knew that she was quite talented and made already kind of scrap booking more then 65 years ago ! So the so said new scrap booking existed already in my mothers generation, only it had no name.
Here she is 22 and feeds a little deer. The trouble is, I can't read at all what she has written because she wrote in the old German writing, the gothic.
The only thing I can really read are the dates. I wasn't born yet
I think she must have given up drawing when the war ended and the struggle of surviving and getting food kept her more then busy. Even later, I never saw my mother drawing again and she never talked about it either.But I must have inherited some genes otherwise I couldn't paint or draw.
