Grandma - Wordless Wednesday


(Digital Image. Photograph Privately Held By Cynthia Shenette; Text Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette) This photo of my grandmother, Antonina (Bulak) Szerejko (1896-1990), was probably taken before her marriage, perhaps sometime around 1918 or 1919.  She was a talented seamstress so my guess is she made the dress she is wearing.  My grandmother wasn't a classic beauty, but I think she is beautiful in this photograph.

Grandma really is beautiful in this photo! Thank you all for your comments!

Kristin - The photo was taken by Schervee of Worcester, MA. I have other photos in different poses, all lovely. Maybe I will post them at some point as well.
