CSI # 45

This weeks Case File is open for investigation on CSI
Click HERE 
for your clues into solving the case 
then there was 4
"oldie but goodie" pic of 
my brothers & myself posing under the wisteria 
just off the back verandah of the farm house.... 
this would have been the photo sent to family introducing my baby brother..
 he's lying on the beautiful shawl hand knitted by my mum for my layette 
which was used by we 4 & 3 of my cousins' ..
Sadly, mum loaned the shawl & it was washed in very hot water, being 3 ply pure wool 
it shrank beyond recognition ...  mum cried !!!
Thanks for calling by 
Happy scrapping 


  1. This is gorgeous and I can relate to the shrinking of the beautiful shawl, my grandmother used to knit for all of us and then her grandchildren and my mother-in-law once washed one of her creations in hot water and I was devastated because it was my son's (her great grandchild). We must move on though I guess :-)

  2. Oh what a special memory for you, love old photos, beautifully scrapped too..very vintagey...and oh dear about the shawl...
