Straight from the heart of Scotland, home of my ancestors, came a wonderful package of all things Scottish. I saw on HelenMcClory’s blog, Schietree, (Helen was portrait number 81 of my 100 Portraits project), that she was giving a collection of photos (including an awesome photo book of her own and an amazing little book about the islands surrounding Scotland, one of which I discovered was a stronghold of my own family from the 16th century), a couple of very cool postcards from early 1900′s and some wonderful woolly photos of those Scottish sheep, which I also discovered do not form a solid wool carpet across the entire country. I just had to enter my name, an lo and behold the lords of the clan held up for me; I received this in the mail soon after.
Thank you so much Helen! Glad we ran into each other!
