A Grave Perspective

In preparation today for setting up some more elaborate scenes, I took some lovely vintage props to the cemetery to see how they might work with the telling of wordless stories.

Quite honestly, I could spend forever on this project I was so excited by it!
As my daughter said this morning:  "That's the kind of thing you stay up all night 
thinking about, isn't it?"

Yes.  :)

I spent a few hours getting to know the stones and carvings and I was so incredibly touched by what they revealed.  My only wish is that I could know more about the lives of those
 buried all these many years.

But still, I truly hope I will do them justice and that their stories remain, whatever they may be.


  1. Great pictures and I love your use of the props, especially the single flower on "Our Rose!"

  2. I love how you've brought items that were from their lifetimes with you.
