I have a very short story with pictures of a gift my Nana gave to my mother. It is a dress that has been now worn by 4 generations. With the dress comes the Welsh wisdom of Nana. How do I share this with you?
I have jpeged the pages. It was written in my scrap booking program, not Word. The pictures are shown with the words.
