Postcards from Paradise - Remembering

Last year in October, I participated in Postcards from Paradise "Remembering" the four Sundays before Dia de los Muertos. Postcards from Paradise is hosted by Rebecca at recuerda mi corazon. This Sunday Rebecca posted comments from a variety of those who participated, and included the one where I remembered my Grandma Rose. You can see Rebecca's beautiful post here. I plan to participate again this year, it's such a loving reminder of those who have left us.

This is my Grandma Rose, with me and my big sister Jane.

It's appropriate to think about remembering right now; we're headed out of town this weekend for my Uncle Warren's memorial service and interment. We'll be with lot's of family and doing lot's of reminiscing. It's all good. 

On another note, I'm pleased that both my Vintage and Art Etsy shops have been keeping me busy! A few packages are sent off each week, which makes me very happy!  It's also helping reduce the "stuff" we're downsizing from our collections and that I'm de-stashing from my vintage ephemera and books... and that's a VERY GOOD THING! Seriously! *nods head* You don't even want to see my office where it's all stored. O.o 

Happy Monday everyone!
