MIXED MEDIA MONDAY - mothers and daughters


Here is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.  My mother and me.

Mom's name was Effie, but my dad's endearing name for her was "Fifi", which he said was the French equivalent of Effie.  I'm not sure this is true, but it was his way of showing his love for her.

What a wonderful picture! Your card is beautiful. I don't know if Fifi is the equivalent of Effie or not, but for a short time in college I acquired Fifi as a nickname.
