In loving memory of Aunt Maudie~

My Great Aunt Maudie~ whom I attribute a lot of my love for collecting vintage and beautiful things; and with that comes my pack rat tendancies. I wouldn't give them up for anything!

Like my Grandma(dad's side), Aunt Maudie (mom's side) suffered from alzheimers~ and now they are both at peace and are very much missed.

Such a sweet tribute. I loved seeing the photos. The younger one in the post reminds me of you some, but I can't decide which features. My grandmother's twin sister was Maude. I never knew her but always heard such nice stories about her.
