Today is Black Friday...
So I was looking around my house and I realized that I do not own hardly any black pieces.
But I do have a PASSION for Black Americana.
(This picture hangs in my kitchen)
Some think this is a negative portrayal of our history and culture.
I believe that it is part of our past that we should never forget.
I collect these .. All God's Children.
( The lady I bought these from had nnooooo idea what she had. I got my entire collection for 3.00!!)
They are created by V. Holcombe.
This is called God Is Love. (#162)
She reminds me of playing dress up when Angelique and I were little girls.
(Sorry about my finger..I am too tired to photshop today lol)

Who dosen't have an adored grandmother that fell asleep from time to time?
Speaking of grandmothers..
This is my great-grandmother Daisy. I never met her but she instilled a long legacy of devout Lord
loving people I know as family.
(Trust and believe she never fell asleep in church. She ruled with an iron fist. )
And this is my mamma.
Valedictorian of her class, she instilled education as a virtue in all of us.
I love her for that so very much more.
Love you mamma!!
I am very proud of my family and my heritage.
I would not trade it for anything in the world.
How can we ever know where we are going if we never know where we came from?
Embrace who you are and always ...
love your inner little girl.
