Grace is gorgeous!! I love images from that era.

You're so right about that humility, it's been my privelege to know several WW1 and WW2 vets, and women who lived through those wards, and none of them brag about their adventures, you usually have to coax their stories out of them in quiet moments, even then I think most of it goes untold.

Ya know if it's historical, I love it! This is fabulous! And yes, I think this has been one of the super busiest weeks of the year! It seems to be in the air!
Love the glitter font on here, did ya make it yourself? It looks very cool!

What a lovely blog you have! Thanks so much for stopping by mine & leaving such kind comments.

I can't help but be reminded of the opening words of GONE WITH THE WIND (THE best movie of all time) when I read your post & your tribute to the gentle men & women of the war era!! Different time period, yet the same sentiments. Looking forward to getting to know you better!

Donna- this post has me teary. My dad served in WWII and we lost him two years ago at 83. He was the greatest man I have ever know. Yes, that generation...incredible. My mom is still here (her middle name is Grace!) and she's amazing. How thoughtful of you to create something in their honor. Thank you for touching my heart this morning.

Grace is gorgeous, as is your blog.
Only recently found your blog and this end of the community celebrating all the good things in life. My mum was a child during WWII, her brothers and sister were veterans with that special quality of being humble in their contribution to the world we live in now. Thank you for celebrating for all of the unnamed folks from that era.

Lots of wonderful creative inspiration here, will be sure to back in the future for another look. Good luck with back to school


Grace is the colors. I really enjoyed your blog and will be back to visit. cherry

Michelle Cummings

this is so nice and love all the colors.


Beautiful collage and I love the honorable theme you have chosen. My Grandfather served in WW2. I feel your pain with the middle school boy thing. My son is now in 9th grade so were are doing the third year of this. Thank-goodness for daily report emails of his grades from the district! Why o why can't he be like I was in school!!?? :P

You are so right about the Greatest Generation! I have Uncles that served in WWII and Grandfathers in WW! - there will never be another time like that. Sad! I'm going through the same thing with my middle school daughter! What has happened to our kids that we have to hand hold them all the way through high school? LOVE your collage - I love that whole era!

Kimla Cotropia

After working in a middle school for several years, I can empathize with the crazy complex scheduling of classes and events. Those are tough years! Your collage is really are so talented with colors and placement. It's completely charming.


Grace is bright cheery and simply delightful!!
Can't wait to see the others.

Take care,
