Ah so lovely. Her paintings are fantastic! As someone who lives in the UK, not too far from Devon I can really appreciate those scenes. What a wonderful llife she has led and a great family she has grown!


Such a beautiful and sentimental post, Em. I LOVE that last pic of you with your Grandma. What wonderful memories to cherish always ~


What a wonderful artist your Grandma is. She certainly looks like a fantastic person to know :-)


handmade gifts are the best! That painting with the black&white cows is really cute and I bet one could lose oneself in daydreaming with the one with the horses and the hills.
I was already thinking about visiting my grandparents today but now I'm definately gonna go! I'm so lucky that they live in the same city as I do!

she reminds me exactly of how you will be as a great gram one day. how VERY COOL>! that photo of her with Ivy where she is touching her hair, make sure to write the story of what they were talking about and what was said! i have a photo of my gramma and me from around that same age (5) and i wish i knew what we talked about, she died right after that photo of us was taken and wrote a poem about it to go with the photo, but i never knew what was said or who took the photo!!!
LOVE all these pictures and you are right, she is an AMAZING ARTIST WOW!! i am impressed and touched at how she still has the passion!


So many beautifull memories you have with her. Cherish the time you could spend with her and know that she will always be there for you - one way or another :-)


what a special story. she sounds like a great person, great as in wow, now there's someone to look up to, kind of great!
