Margorie Rose Memories – paper shoe no. 8

Marjorie  Rose was my grandmother

an amazing woman who passed on her gift of creativity to me.  Shoe no.8 is dedicated to her memory.  Handmade in paper and tissue printed with images of my grandmother as a young child.  Have so many happy memories of her, a fantastic cook, made absoloutely everything from her clothes to summer and winter soft furnishings.  Made clothes for me as a child and always an identical dress or coat for my doll.  Wedding dresses, wedding cakes, christmas cakes and puddings, christmas crackers, tree decorations,  surreal savoury birthday parties for me to curried eggs and pineapple upside down cake.  She was a treasure, died back in 1987 and buried locally.

  1. Yours shoes are spectacular (I’ve only tried the Mary Jane shoe). Thankyou so much too for your comment on my blog (re paper-cutting), it is very much appreciated. Now I’ve found your wonderful blog I’ll be back to add more comments as I read more.
