So my mom and aunt came out to stay with me while Todd was TDY. My grandmother passed away this year, and they've been bringing me some of her things that I requested. My grandmother's kitchen wall was covered with little 'knicknacks", and when I was little I always loved looking at them. So they brought me all of the things off her wall. They are little things that were important to her, and I know it would make her happy to know how much I've always liked them. So my mom and aunt spent a few days recreating the wall at my house, using a picture they had of her kitchen.

This is what it looks like...

I have a few favorite things from the wall. One of them is this picture:

My grandmother is the little girl in front, feeding a lamb from a bottle. Her mother (my great-grandmother) is behind her on the far left. The picture was taken in the late 1920s.

The other FABULOUS thing they brought me was an old quilt!!

There is no signature block on the back, so I don't know much about it, other than it is a family quilt that has been passed down. The latest it could've been made was the turn of the century.

I love antiques, and it means even more when you know the history behind them. This has been an important lesson is "Always sign your work"!

I absolutely love that your mom and your aunt re-created your grandma's wall in your house.

It's so great that every time you walk into that room you will be surrounded by sweet memories.

My memories of my grandma involve clocks. She always had the noisiest clocks! I am going to have to blog about that LOL
