This lovely lady's name was Marianne Celanise Bouchard and she was my grandmother. She spent all of her life in Quebec Canada and had a very interesting life that included having two daughters, my mother Marguerite and my aunt Suzanne (both sadly gone now and sorely missed).
My grandmother was a homemaker extraordinaire, who made sure with her sewing and millinery skills that her 2 daughters were very well dressed even during the Depression. She modeled most of their clothing after the little "Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret" of England as they were approximately the same age as my mother and aunt and my grandmother thought their clothing was just what she wanted her little princesses to wear. I have many family pictures of them as children dressed in the most beautiful outfits that were indeed fit for little princesses, all made by hand by my beloved grandmother! Her skill with a needle is to this day a family legend. In future posts I will be putting up pictures of some of her creations which I hope you will enjoy seeing.
