A Vintage Portrait of a Woman Who Was Loud and Proud
My grandma Olga was one of a kind.
A loud and proud Italian woman who obviously caught the eye of everyone around her.
She wasn’t afraid to tell you when you were wrong, and could charm absolutely anyone!
She spoke many different languages and traveled often to Italy and France making new friends along the way. She was known for her intelligence, her laugh, and her amazing cooking.
I never got to meet her, but I look at her every day in the mirror when I look at myself and for that I am truly thankful.
This photo arrived on my doorstep as a surprise gift from my uncle along with many other photos and my grandma’s scarves, handbags as well as a pair of black velvet gloves! ~shared by @bygoneeravintage
