I just love this hanging. It's my family through the seasons. My granddaughter as spring, my daughter as summer, I'm autumn and my mum is winter. The photos show us as a child, a mother, a grandmother and a great grandmother.

  2. What a beautiful and original idea! I specially like the way each block is different but related by design, as your matriarchal line is.
