My mom and I, circa 1978 on a carousel – probably at the Seattle Center, or somewhere else in Seattle.
I was wearing a teeny, tiny half-shirt.
Eliza Jane Hensley Agee was my 3rd great-grandmother.
She born in 1813 in Virginia. She died 9 Oct 1904 in Woolwine, Virginia.
She is buried in the Agee Cemetery in Woolwine, Virginia. (It is off the beaten path, in the middle of the woods).
Here, you can see the headstone and footstone.And a couple of different angles….
And here you can see her stone in relation to her husband, Austin Agee’s stone.
Bertha Mae (Davidson) Howard was my husband’s great-great aunt (the sister to his great grandfather, Clyde Cleveland Davidson). She was married to Walter Van Howard.

Sometimes I wish that I actually had a fancy-schmancy set of china, instead of a generic set from a box store.
This china was my Grandma Eleanore Bergman’s. Her sisters, Elvy and Martha, bought it for her as a wedding present when she married my grandpa, Donald Sanchez.
Only a few pieces of it are left. Most of it was broken over the years. (She had 5 kids and moved around a lot, so it was inevitable.)
I love the details in this pattern. It’s colorful and happy.
And I really like the basket weave texture and the scalloped edges. Lots of little details.
My mom painted this pattern onto a cabinet when I was a kid. It brings me happy memories.
