This is My Grandma, originally uploaded by MaggieMason.
My aunt sent me this photo when she passed away, and I keep it on our fridge. Invariably, people comment on how much they like the old-timey photo of me.
Wow your Grandma looks absolutely stunning and like she was one heck of a woman. Just look at that jaunty angle for the hat.
Your grandma looks beautiful and fierce! Awesome picture!
She does look A LOT like you! :) Wow.
I love b&w’s of old photos. Everyone looks so regal and fancy. Boy, your Grandma looks like she’s got something to hide in those eyes. Very pretty.
*THAT* is an awesome photo. I don’t have many photos of my grandmother, my mom and I were just saying that the other day……I don’t know who I look like – but you clearly have your answer !
WOW! That is SO you!!!!!! Get that puppy in a frame!
Stunning. Not only do you look just like her, but you’ve got the same knowing, up-to-something spark in your eye.
Oh, my…What long, slender toes you have. Well, all but that one little piggie on the very end that goes WEEWEEEWEEEEWEEEEEEE all the way home!
i almost think that you’re playing a trick on us and that IS you. the two of you look eerily alike.
She’s positively amazing. You definitely inherited her beauty.
And weird! I just uploaded an oldie today, too. And while no one would say I’m a ringer for my great gran, it’s a goodie.
So. Weird. First, yes – you are TWINS. So awesome.
Second, I uploaded some vintage pics to Flickr just today of my mom, grandparents and greatgrandparents. I look like my mom, but especially like my grandmother.
I love that picture. And I love that you are sharing it on your blog. Yes, as you age you look more and more like your Grandma when young. I have enjoyed the comments. I sure miss her.
Wow, the similarity is amazing. You should have a photo done in exactly the same outfit/style…
Steph, that’s actually an item on my life list.
Megan, I love the story behind your grandma photo. So intriguing.
That is amazing and absolutely lovely.
Wow. Really lovely.
what a gift!
Your Grandma is stunning and so are you. It must be nice to be able to look back an know who in your family you look like. I’m such a bizarro mix of both sides, that I don’t look like any one, not even my siblings. Sometimes people even ask me if my sister-in-law is my sister because we look more alike then I do with my actual sister.
I have a photo of my grandmother that gets much the same reaction. I love it! And that photo o f your grannie is fab.

It doesn’t quite do the resemblance justice, but still… Additionally, the photo of my dad’s father looks remarkably like my wee brother, as well.
She is beautiful!! You have inherited her beauty.
That’s so special. Somehow I look like both of my parents and yet nothing like either of my Grandmothers. What a neat thing that you share so much with her!
grandmother on which side?
You do look alot like her. What a wonderful gift =)
You two are so beautiful and look so eerily similar that this entry sent me on a bender for several days thinking about death and the afterlife. This bender is subsiding with my seeking both spiritual and psychological counseling. Threw me for a loop for sure, brings mortality to the forefront and makes me want to live and forgive for the future that might so closely resemble me. YIKES. A headful, a mouthful a heartful.
Wow, isn’t lineage remarkable? Not just similar in looks, but you and your grandmother share a little inner somethin’ somethin’.
Completely and utterly stunning. You are lucky to have genes like that. The pictures of my grandmothers make me think it is lucky they procreated at all.
That is a TRIP. I would have absolutely thought that was you if you hadn’t set us straight. Fantastic! And how cool – you’re carrying Grandma on right down the line. Excellent.
Well, you sure do take after your gran as a young woman.
I did up my hair all old-timey once and put on a lot of red lipstick and a old-fashioned hat I had made, and lo, I turned into my Grandma Davis, circa 1943.
Genetics is crazy stuff!
