My grandparents are finally discussing moving into a Senior Apartment - so the "we have to get rid of stuff!" movement has begun!
I have been telling my grandmother for years thatthe only "thing" that I want is the quilt that er mother (my paternal great grandmother on my fathers mothers side) made. (I thought I was goingt o have to wait for the reading of the will & I know how she has been "storing" it...)
I got it yesterday! No photos yet, it is in a box along with some crocheted items that my paternal great grandmother on my fathers fathers side made.
The short version - I got some handmade items that two of my great grandmothers made.
I also got some woodworking items that my grand father made & a framed embroidery piece that my mother made in the early 1970's.
I hope to get some antique kitchen items when my grandmother actually moves - like an old glass rolling pin.
