Four Sisters



The theme at Gothic Arch this week is Heritage. The photo I used this week are my great -grandmother and her sisters. She is the one on the left. Her name was Ernestine and her sisters names were Lena, Molly and Celia. I don't know which one is which. My mom is named after Celia. The family name was Gemeiner. Unfortunately, I never got to meet any of them. It is such a lovely photo. I look at it and wonder what they were like.
The stamps are Gelatins and Anna Griffin. The ink is Versafine.
