Be Aware, Be Thankful 1. Closeness of grocery stores 2. Skype 3. Family * * * * These are some wonderful boxes that were my maternal grandmother's. I love them and have them out on my sewing cabinet where I can see them daily. They are great storage containers for my trimmings and ribbons.
Grandma Park and I share the same birthday, December 7th. We always celebrated it together with a family dinner. The first birthday I celebrated by myself, after Grandma passed away seemed odd.
Our birthdays weren't the only thing we shared, as it turns out. I'd like to think that my love of quilting, gardening and playing cards came from Grandma.
She made some spectacular quilts that I need to take pictures of and post here. She also helped hand quilt my wedding quilt.
Grandma had a very well kept flower garden and loved to be outside weeding and trimming.
I didn't find out how similar our interests were until after she had passed away. I wish I had had more time to share our interests.
Grandma's daily use cup and saucer are pictured below with other favored trinkets.
Here are how some of my other cubbies look. I love to keep things around that make me laugh, remind me of new and old friends, inspire or comfort me.
