One of the most influential people in my life was my grandmother. I truly have no idea why, but she was. My memories of her are sincerely precious, and I adored everything about her.... I have more childhood memories with her than anything else, oddly enough!!! I like that. There are days that I crave for just one more conversation with her. Funny that, as time goes on you remember more things and SMILE :)
I mean, Grandmothers are great for cooking and teaching you how to bake things like
Or, having a different purse in her closet for any outfit imaginable (I really took this fabulous life-skill to heart).
And, enjoying screened porches and watermelon....
But one thing that I have a love/hate relationship about with my grandmother is her love for cards. When she passed away, she had an entire drawer in her dresser full of every card she had ever received from her friends and family. She treasured it. To my dismay, I am the same way. I constantly have to FORCE myself to throw away a hand-written card....... It's always a power struggle-- keep the cards that mean so much to me (it's terrible that my major love language is words of encouragement) or keep collecting them until I create a forrest equivalent of paper in my home???!!!!
Thinking about cards, pictures, and posters recently have led me to like this post by Belle Maison. She had some cute ideas on displaying the things you're a little bit attached to, and ones that are sooooo cute!!!
Aren't they adorable?
Happy Monday, Friends.
Only a Grandma.
