Grandma's Things



This is a little display I made of a few things that belonged to my dad's mother. I never knew her...she died when my dad was a young man. Look at the cool metal compact and lipstick tube! They still have makeup in them. Goodness knows what bacteria is flourishing in there! She made the doilies and doll dress, and I'm not sure about the handkerchief. It looks more like something store-bought. Maybe my dad bought it for her for a gift? I love the little brownie camera. Boy, have we come a long way from those things!

I wish I could have known her here, but I know that I will meet her someday, and she will laugh at me for displaying her old stuff!

How sweet this is! I never knew either of my grammas and it would be so precious to have something like this!

Thank you for your comment.

I love the way you have put your grandma's things in a special place and displayed them together. Very nice.

That's lovely. A great way to remember the lady, particularly things which she has made herself.
