Remember Granny?

I have had Granny on my mind a lot lately.
I was thinking that I might repost some pictures of her
once a week or so.

I remember when Granny had this big stack of quilts.
She worked so hard on making the quilts and
hoped to sell them but only sold a few at Christmas
until I introduced her quilts to you bloggers!

This is her little gas fireplace and mantle.
I used to love taking pictures of things around her house.
I loved the simplicity of how Granny lived.
I still think of it all the time.

Don't ask me why I took pictures of her little feet.
But I did.
I am glad I have these pictures now.

Granny's quilts were plain and simple but still live on
even though my little Granny is in heaven.
I would not take anything for my pictures and memories
of Granny.
I hope when I am gone that my children and grandchildren
will have something to remember me by.
Join me every weekend as I celebrate my Granny's life by remembering her.

Val, this is how I found you online. I was searching for quilts that Granny made. (A lot of beautiful, traditional quilts are made by Granny's...) I downloaded each of your Granny's pictures of herself, on my hardrive. I have "major clinical depression" and the fast paced lifestyle of people today and me, just don't mix. The purpose of me saving and looking at her pictures, is to realize there is a much more simplier lifestyle. I can look at her house, her clothes, her quiilts and... just a peace comes upon me. Hey, I got a new, online friend out of this,also. YOU !!!

Wouldn't she be pleased to think her granddaughter was still honoring her? She certainly was a sweetheart and I know you miss her very much, Val.

You would be surprised how often I think about Granny. I was lucky enough to get two Granny quilts. They mean the world to me.
Thank you Val, for bringing Granny to the internet for us all to enjoy.

I love my Granny quilt!!! I work part time for a company called Visiting Angels. I am working with a woman now that is 98 yrs old. She is amazing. She takes no meds, has her own teeth and gets around with her walker. She still has cards at her home and still goes to mass on sunday mornings. I think of Granny sometime when I am up there. Amazing how some people are when they get older! Love ya and love Granny.
