About Wordless Wednesday.

Elizabeth is a professional genealogist, writer, and consultant. Likes: long walks in the cemetery, and the smell of old courthouse books. Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).

  1. This is adorable! Were you able to match up the pinwheel with the proper grave?

  2. Yes, thank goodness! Every time we go to a cemetery, she turns into a little “klepto,” and swipes pinwheels and Flags off of people’s graves. Caught her in the act with the camera this time!

  3. Naughty, but so darn cute!

  5. :-) I’m sure that who ever placed it there didn’t mind that she enjoyed it for a bit. I’ve been spending some time in the local cemetery and haven’t seen a single pinwheel. I’ll have to leave a few for the youngest visitors.

  6. i bet she did put it back.

  7. She’s a lovely girl. I think people will understand. :)
