So in the continued cleanup and sort out for my virtual garage sale, I came across a few things that were my paternal Grandmothers that I thought I might share. I have very few things that were my Grandmothers as she passed away when I was only 9 and I am pretty much estranged from my father so I haven't had the chance to claim all of the things I know that she wanted me to have. So this is pretty much it. Her little christening mug, a carnival glass punch bowl mug and her little Toby jug. That is her in her wedding dress which my Mum actually has at her house, I'm too worried to have it at mine. I had always dreamed that I would wear it on my wedding day, but unfortunately I am around 5'6 and she was about 5' and extremely tiny, so that didn't quite work out!
My Nanna was quite the crafter and was always into the latest "fad" craft. I like to think that she would be so proud of the things I make and would really get into the softies and stuff, I could even imagine her with a blog!
