The thing about glitter is if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Our Roots :: Crafting Ancestry

Recently, our uncle sent us this photo he found on the Memorial University Maritime History website.

George and Alice Shears, 1935

Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother, George and Alice Shears on their doorstep with spinning wheel and hooked rugs, West Coast of Newfoundland, summer 1935 – a picture taken for the Newfoundland Tourist Development Board.

Uncle Terry added: "This is at Grandfather’s old house in Robinson’s. They are near the front door. The veranda extended around three sides of the house. You can see the kitchen part of the house on the right side in the background."

I find this very inspiring.

What do you think?
