Hello Dear Blogging Buddies,

I am working on a collage which features my grandmother Elsa and my grandfather August, (3rd in from the right) when they were dressed in their very modest bathing suits!! Oh how I love these pictures and putting the collage together is so much fun!! The pictures were taken on Long island and the year is around 1915. I wanted to show you a little glimpse of what I have been up to lately. I squeezed these few elements on my scanner so you can see it. I will take a picture of the finished product upon completion to show you.

I hope this finds you All having a very good day!!

Love and Hugs,



  1. Sweet, Susan! I look forward to seeing the finished piece. How fun that you have those photos of your grandparents!

  2. Those are WONDERFUL, Susan! I love looking at people's pictures, and ESPECIALLY ones before 1950! I'll be popping back in to see the finished piece!

  3. Susan these pictures are just so special and to think their of your grandparents makes it even more so. Can't wait to see the finished piece of art.

    Wish I had one of these for my water therapy.
