My Nanna is 97 years old this year and I wanted to make her a keepsake to let her know just how much she enriched my childhood. Days spend collecting eggs with her from the chicken coup and picking berries from the cool shade of the Mulberry Tree on a summers afternoon. She taught me the true meaning of spending quality time together with the ones we love.
My Nanna absolutely loves Hydrangeas and has always had them in her yard, so I chose that stamp for the background.
