Great Grandmother Beryl Hughes
Born in the late nineteenth century.
College Graduate.
Texan. Nevadan. Californian.
Expert canner.
Diligent recycler, before recycling really existed.
Wearer of pearly cat-eye glasses until the day she died.

If I knew her when this photograph was taken, I think we would have been great friends.


  1. Beryl Hughes sounds like a very English name (I am too) Love your blog, found you via the Pyrex Collective.

  2. Thank you so much! Yes, that side of the family is most definitely English! Along with some Irish and American Indian thrown in along the way. :)

  3. Love this photo! I really wish I had more photos of family members. Such treasures!
