Here are the twins when they were 2 years old in 1934....Betty & Joan in an original ornate curved glass frame which are so beautiful & in wonderful condition. Betty was really touched that I wanted to keep them. It nearly made me cry when she kissed the photo of her twin goodbye. How could you ever throw that out?! I somehow found a space for it on a wall.
And here are the twins when they were 4 years old...the colour of the photos have been painted...I wish I could get a better photo of the detail.
A photograph of Betty's mum Lily.
Betty's Father Dick Eley & her twin sister Joan have both written books about their adventures.
Here is Joan's (Betty's twin sister) little suitcase from long ago.
A little hand knitted blanket.
This is a very old arts & crafts style magazine rack.
Vintage oriental fan.
A funny old pink bendy lamp.
I love the colour of this shabby old chair, stamped by a European maker...now residing in our bedroom.
A corner wot not (or however you choose to spell it!) that I was going to get rid of but then thought twice about it & decided it might work in our bedroom.
I'll have more to show & tell tomorrow!
