(You might notice the change of scenery here! New look for a new season :) )
We got Grandma VM (my mom’s mom) all moved in to her new place on Saturday. It’s such a nice little apartment she has now! She was downsizing from a two bedroom, two bath condo into a one bedroom, one bath, kitchenette apartment in an assisted living complex. Once we had her furniture in place, her bed all made, and the grandfather clock chiming in the corner it really felt very homey and very Grandma-ish :)
Because she was downsizing so much, we were able to inherit some of her things. I got a few tablecloths, an electric wok, a tv stand, an armoire, and most of her collection of little pitchers from around the world. For many years before my grandpa died, they traveled all over and the one thing Grandma always made sure to collect to commemerate the trip were miniature pitchers. I intend on sharing some pictures of them in future posts, but right now I don’t have the best setup for photos that can really show the details of some of them. It’s on my ever-increasing list of to-do’s!
Also saw this photo on Shorpy from 1924 of a girls’ sewing class. So interesting!
