While this probably belongs on my altered art blog, not as many visit that blog as this one and I wanted to share this as I know a couple of my cousins and my sister read this one. (I will blog on the altered art blog today too).
I grew up listening to stories about the 'house in Hudson (Iowa)' from my mom's sister, Marion who was known to most of us as Aunt Mommie. She spent many happy days with her paternal grandparents who lived there. The house is long gone and my aunt died about eight years ago but, for many of us, the memories remain. She even had an artist friend do a rendering of the 'house in Hudson' from a photograph. I elected to do a collage inside a tray I picked up on sale at a craft store.
The baby in the picture is my aunt a bit over a year old and the house is the one in Hudson.
(I've been experiencing a bit of vertigo lately and will be starting new meds today so hopefully will be able to be more punctual about my blogging).
