Kim Yu said...

I kept thinking grandmom looks so familiar and yup, she looks just like my friend, Flo! Flo was one of my co-workers, she retired a few years back.

Everyone did an awesome job with grandmom and grandpa! Too cute!

Congrats, Mercy!

Julye said...

This set is so cute, the grandpa I think will be like so many granddads, I know my dad frequently wears a shirt and tie although he doesn't have the round belly yet, and the grandma she is so cute but I couldn't see my mom dressed like that, but my great granny always wore a full pinny and I can't actually ever remember seing her in just a dress, although I'm sure she must have at some time. Thanks for introducing these cuties they are fab and would love to invite them over for a cuppa and a play Julye
