Blog Hop and Memory Keepers

I've been visiting various blogs this morning. I have viewed creative spaces, mountain cabins, art journals, and gardens. What a wonderful way to start the day. Take a look at the Blog Hop below. See all those wonderful blogs? They are full of inspiration and friendly, creative people for you to meet.

The one that touched me the most because I feel a real soul connection with this whole idea is at Penny's new blog titled memory keeper. I've been following her art blog creative overflow  but now she is taking off with a new blog geared to writing about her family. Penny's father was a photographer and she has a large collection of wonderful photos to share with her readers. I look forward to her photos and remembrances.

On another note, my desktop developed problems today. I've had this same problem three or four times before but now the contract has run out. It is the video card which in this Gateway is part of the mother board. So the decision. Have it replaced again or get a new computer. Thank heavens for my laptop! I can stay in touch although I don't have many of the addresses I want on this one. I shall endeavor to persevere.

In the meantime, start gathering your family photos. Find the ones stuck in a drawer. The others stashed in a shoe box. The ones still in envelopes from relatives. Gather them all in to one place. It's time to start putting the memories with them.

On that note: here's my Grandmother Jennie (in the white dress)
with a lady I believe was a friend. Don't you just love the summer hat? I wish I knew the friend's name and the occasion.
