Grandma's House - FINALLY!

Sooooo ... I began working on this layout a year ago ... ran across it today while I was reorganizing my scraproom after moving everything from the small upstairs bedroom to the downstairs spare room Saturday and yesterday. I decided I just had to finally get this thing finished. I was originally going a little bit different direction with it, but was just never satisfied with what I had arranged, and now I am much happier with the design.

This was my grandmother's house and my mom's house when she was little. This house was torn down when I was about 2 years old. The Corps of Engineers was building a large new reservoir in East Texas, so they built my grandmother a new house about 200 yards away that was on higher ground. Many years later when I spent summers with my Grandma, we would walk around at the edge of the water and find old bottles and other artifacts from when the house was there. My grandma's was my favorite place in the whole world to visit - she passed away when I was in college, and I miss her and visiting the old family place terribly, even after all these years!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. oh Theresa, I can completely understand the missing her after all the years. I can't ever imagine it goes away. The paper and details on here are really beautiful and it almost brings me back to that time. Great color choices and fabrics.


Thanks for the love - it makes my heart sing when I hear from my lovely friends!
