In Her Image




“Imitation is the Best Form of Flattery”… Above is a photo of my great-grandmother. We called her “Granna Cille.” I was blessed to have her in my life for 12 years. She was so sweet, and she had an impeccable memory. Although we were miles apart, and she had several great-grandchildren, and I wasn’t able to visit frequently, she always remembered my favorite dessert & prepared it for me every time I came to visit…Not only did I admire her stunning beauty, but also her strong character. So, I guess it’s obvious why I  want to be like her.


Since I look at the above photo a lot (it’s the wallpaper on my cell phone), I decided to recreate it…


Here’s some before pics. I just woke up, so my hair was supa-dupa big! LoL Open-mouthed smile



Since I wanted to my hair to resemble Granna Cille’s, I started by setting my hair in Curlformers.



Then, I rounded up my accessories…





Me & GC



Upon seeing the recreated pictures, my mom said Granna Cille would be proud. When I heard that, my heart smiled…**G.I.G.**

P.S. – I want to give a shout to jwoodstudios! He made the recreated pictures look old/aged. Oh, and he’s also responsible for designing my blog.
