A few scenes and some of the special things I squirreled away for myself at my grandmother's house.
A floral china set, my favorite curtains in my favorite room. A set of plastic red roses - also in my favorite room. An old summer vacation souvenir from the N.J. Aquarium - there's a tiny light bulb hidden behind the shell but the chord is in crumbles. The oldest piece of clothing I've found in my grandmother's house (which is surprising because she seemingly saved everything) a late 1930s smock coat, it's filthy and needs to be mended in more places then I can count - but I can't wait to wear this with my Lyell shorts come summer time. A nice floral paper box, that used to hold manicure supplies. A stash of dairy cups hidden inside a cabinet that probably hadn't been opened in a very long time. A box of metal letters I asked my grandmother for about 5 years ago, but for some reason she was emotionally attached to them and in her crazy old lady ways, hid them in her house - I've been searching ever since and finally, finally found it tucked away in the basement. And a favorite tapestry covered chair that's tucked away in the basement and is taking on ghost qualities due to my unsteady hand.
I helped my mum start an etsy shop selling some of the things we've pulled out of there - you can find it here - and I plan on adding more things in March when I go back!
