Thanks! I was kind of playing with 2 ideas: that it is sort of like a "spirit house", ie a place for her spirit to reside in my house, and also the idea that as a talented, brilliant woman she lived in a time when she wasn't really free to pursue her ambitions, and I think she was always a bit frustrated by that (caged). She was an artist and taught my dad to love art, especially photography, hence the film & bulb. I always feel like it's slightly unfinished though.

Hello- Ahem...my first post in the art section (*coughs nervously*)
I'm not sure if this is the right area for this..but...I found these amazing photos in a drawer at my parents' house. They are pix of my grandma as a young and fun college girl, and some other misc really old family pix. I was really close to my Grandma and wanted to do something special with them. Meanwhile...I also had a vintage birdcage that I wasn't sure what to do with. So...I was looking at a lot of Joseph Cornell and wanted to do some boxes or 3D collage, and I came up with this. I sandwiched the photos in glass, backed with beautiful hand made papers (from the art store..no credit there) and tied them up with wires and beads, and hung them in the cage, (painted black to look more iron and less shabby chic) along with a few other family-symbolic items (an overexposed roll of film, a projector bulb, some candles and an ornament) and..voila! I'm pretty pleased with it, although it was hard to get a good picture...What do you think?

Also, you could make a family scrapbook but enlarge pictures and stuff so they are easier for her to see, you could use a color copier even, maybe 1 or 2 photos per page.

For your Grandma I'd suggest something really tactile, very soft or textured, maybe a soft scarf or a blanket? Or something she can work that's not very difficult, like a knifty knitter with soft yarn, unless she has arthritis or something. Or a good audio book, maybe make a nice textured cover or box for it?
