To Grandmother's House We Go: Part 1

My grandmother's house is pretty magical. She has a giant sewing room full of yards and yards of mudcloth, batik, plaid, and hundreds nay THOUSANDS of buttons.When I was a kid, I used to spend hours upon hours sorting bags of buttons from garage and estate sales. It was very important business and I loved doing it. My grandma used to make me the most exquisite coats, one years was a red wool number with black trim at the sleeves and a matching red beret – I got street snapped wearing it! I was about 6 I think. I definitely owe my love of fashion in large part to her. Also my love of Shirley Temple movies, Rex Harrison and Ovaltine.

Anywhoo I hope you enjoy this peek into her sewing room, and hopefully I can dig up some photos of her creations to show you too. She also collects pottery in different colors – white, yellow, green, etc which I've included here, and part two will include her unbelievably glam jewelz, bathroom and closet. Stay tuned!










Tell me what you think people!
