August Challenge
 Title: My Nan

This is my nan Margaret Gillespie, she was my dad's mum who lived with us until she passed away.
I can always remember her wearing this outfit with her hat, she was of the old school that older girls wore hats and a dress, and us younger one's in a nice dress and shoe's.
The boys always wore a clean shirt with either shorts or trousers. My mum would often start to cook our roast dinner before going to church. Either mum or nan would leave early to put the finishing touches to our roast lunch.
This is just one memory I have on my nan.
I have used scalloped ribbon, papers and bling, along with some dried flowers and other things that remind me of memories of my nan. Her old fashion house key, her beside clock and flowers, my nan loved flowers.
