Zeus and Zoe February Challenge


Hello. Sharing my second project for Zeus and Zoe today where the theme for this month is 'love'.
All the papers, most of the flowers, the doily and buttons are all from the Zeus and Zoe kit that can be made to order from Marivic's Etsy Store.
The photo is of a bundle of love letters, which I now have and cherish, written to my mum from my dad during the 2nd. World War while he was stationed in Britain. Two and a half years before the war ended the letters suddenly stopped. My mother was told he was"missing in action, presumed dead". His plane had been shot down, crashed in the jungle in Burma and he had been captured and imprisoned in Rangoon. For two and a half years he was a prisoner of war...I won't go into the details of that ( this post is meant to be about 'love' after all ) but, luckily he survived. When the war ended he was found, returned to Australia and reunited with mum.
They celebrated a Golden Wedding Anniversary and were devoted to each other until their passing within a year of each other.





Thanks for visiting, have a great week and may you feel loved always, not just on the 14th.
