"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Posts tagged “mother

Thirty four years ago, when the kids were little, I made little books with photos and words……..

Here are the Adventures of Matthew highlights.

No thought of acid-free paper or archival pigment ink when I created this.

I covered two pieces of cardboard with fabric, ironed some of that paper that was coated and would bond when it got really hot and zig-zag stitched the pages on the sewing machine.

The end papers were marbled on this one.

What We Share

An enjoyment of baked goods. I didn’t eat any of these but I am sure we would have had fun together if we did.

flower cakes

Cake flowers from NYC shot last Spring

The enjoyment of flowers (although you’re a good gardener, I like to look at them)

flowers for marlene

Real flowers and bird eggs 

We are fortunate to share the love of grandchildren.  That’s the best thing to share.  Shared love and laughter. 

Have a wonderful birthday, Marlene! 

Happy Birthday Marlene.

(And you share a birthdate with my mother Marian VanSickle Hendricks born 1912)

old Grandma and her camera.

At Grandma Marlene’s house in Hardy, VA. The kids call us both “Froo Froos” but Grandma is self-explanatory.


They Sat on a Davenport

Marian VanSickle married Roy Joseph Hendricks August 1939 in Durand, Illinois

This is not their wedding photo but they look like newlyweds to me.

Memories in a Kitchen and Pyrex Bowls

Peek under the dishtowel. Watch bread dough climb the walls of the white interior. A yellow Pyrex bowl. Glass sounds different if you thump it when it’s full.

Poke a navel.  Let it rest.  Turn out onto a floured board. Knead. Shape. Let rise again. Bake.  Slice a warm loaf.  Butter the slice. Inhale.    Remember.       (rutheh.wordpress.com)
