1210 Welch

This is a layout that I did of my maternal grandparent's home in Houston, Texas. It was inspired by a little piece of broken china that has the following written on it, "To every bird, her nest is beautiful". I found the broken china piece at "The Dove's Nest", in Waxahachie, Texas. It is the gift shop  and tea room that is right next to The Crafty Scrapper. My BFF, Ginger and I love to shop and have lunch at "The Dove's Nest" when we are in Waxahachie for an all day crop. It's one of our favorite things to do together. Since I'm ALWAYS looking for interesting things to add to my LO's I fell in love with the little piece of china, and I knew immediately that my Granny would love that I used it for a LO about her home. The patterned paper is by 7 Gypsies, and is called "Conservatory Collection" The brightly colored bird is a piece of antique scrap from Granny's collection, and the lace flower is by Prima....who else?!!! The feather at the bottom of the LO is from Little Yellow Bicycle's "Twig Collection" and the title, "1210 Welch" is from Graphic 45. The photographs of Letitia and her home were taken in the 1920's. For this layout, I did some distressing, inking, tearing and cut work. Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I cannot get over how MANY pics you own and how much info you have for all of them!!!!! LUCKY girl! You have a treasure trove just waiting to be scrapbooked. Your 'kids' are going to have a collection of family pages to share with their families. This is a wonderful LO, Patty. I love the addition of the feather~
