  1. Beautiful couples both the one yesterday and the one here today as well. But I must admit, I´m more leaning to yesterdays couple as her parents, I must admit. When I look at the pictures and keep Pertrines picture next to them, I can see, that the lady on the one from yesterday is soo alike with Petrine, that it easily could be same woman on different times, so pretty sure, if one of these are her mum, she must be the one. I was actually amazed about, how much they looked alike. Try to keep them next to each other, and I´m sure, you´ll also see the big simularities between these two. But ofcause I also know, that sometimes it´s not like that, but think, this is really much alike, so they must definitely be close related at least ha ha ha. So let me know please, when you find out for sure, as I would love to know, if I´m right ha ha ha.
    So beautiful work here again sweetie, really awesome work, and sooo beautiful. You are certainly out of a family with really beautiful girls, so no wonder, your girls are such cutie girls, and will certainly turn out to be small beautyqueens, when they grow just a little older, that´s for sure. Thwey´re going to break some hearts soon ha ha ha.

    1. Yes, I thing so too! The reason why I think this c-o-u-l-d be a second set of candidates, is that there is a third picture with these two couples together. So maybe they are related somehow too! Meaning one might be Petrine’s parents, and the other could be her aunt and uncle? I’m thinking about creating a collage with all three pictures, but I wanted to find out who they are first 😉 And there never seems to be time to sit down with Grethe and ask her to identify everyone she knows. Besides, I enjoy familiarizing myself with the material, slowly sorting through the images and making my own guesses for now…:-P I’ll indeed let you know when I have more information! xoxoxo
