Aunt Minnie was my Grandma's aunt, I asked my mother about her but she really didn't know too much. So I just used some of our family heirlooms and a few things that I thought might be reflective of a woman's life in the 1800's. I really like the picture, but I doubt it will meet my hopes. Predicted score:5.5

Heh! I don't think she'd have been a junior trooper in the 1800s.... no cars or seatbelts to buckle at that time. Interesting collection of stuff, though.

Beautiful, touching but a bit predictable.

Whether it is or isn't, this feels too set up. I'd like to think it was found this way. I don't know that it wasn't, of course...

This is easy to look at. Has a 'time capsule' feel to it & I like the colour choice here. However, it sort of feels like an image I would see mass produced and hovering over my table at a Chili's- Which is not necessarily a bad thing ;) I do appreciate the decision to have such distinctive shadows- I can almost feel the parallel of time passing over Aunt Minnie's life as the setting sun casts a shadow on her things... well done.

Very sweet. It sure looks like she means a lot to you.
