Black with 2

Here's a photo of my grandparents,Mum and my sister and I in 1958.Marilyn Monroe was just becoming famous at this point in time so I used a picture of her from a birthday card I had.Also I used frilly lace,another remnant of the 1950s and tape measure ribbon as Mum was a dressmaker and kept up with the latest trends.The embellies on the right hand side allude to her dressmaking during that era as well.
