Happy Christmas Wishes!

In wishing you all a Happy Christmas,
I thought I'd take the opportunity
to remember two more Grandfathers
in my family line.

This, sent from the front, during the First World War,
by my Great-Grandfather, William Benjamin Butler, 
to my Great-Grandmother, Edith.
 
This, painted by my own Grandfather, Asher,
towards the end of his long life.
 
A Very Happy Christmas
&
Every good wish for 2013!

  1. They are beautiful. The one sent from the front with "EL" reminds me of how my aunts always used to sign off their letters. And the painting by Asher is simply lovely.
    Happy Christmas to you and yours x
