(Lauren sewed all of these bow ties for the decor as well as the table runners etc. Didn't she do a fab job?!)
(Wild man Brady! Cutest thing ever!)
Sunday we had to head South to sort through my grandmother's estate. That was really hard. I am happy I got to take home some of her good antiques and things that were special to her. My dad and uncle are having an estate sale this coming weekend and it will be very hard to see all of her things go with strangers :( But she had far too many things for even all of us combined to take. Nanny had very unique pieces, an amazing collecting of primitive antiques (17 & 1800s), which are hard to really incorporate into most decors. We all kept what we wanted and the rest is to be sold.
I kept those things that I that would remind me of her on a daily basis and some items I thought would be lovely mixed in with a more modern decor.
Part of life I guess....
(one of her not "good" quilts we were actually allowed to use! I kept a couple good ones (like $500 good!!) as well. I love that they were my grandparent's but also the history behind them. Interesting to imagine the person who made them painstakingly by hand so long ago.)
Finally, Sunday night we celebrated another graduation, my cousin Alan got his bachelor's degree from UK!
Busy weekend. Back to the grind today...How was your weekend?
