In my last post, I blogged all about Chalkboards. Both my mom and my sister commented to me that it reminded them of my Grandma Nora. She has a couple chalkboards around her home. One being a very very large one (Now, after reading my post my Sister Natee has "dibs" on it)
So apparently Grandma Nora believes that every home needs a "Chalkboard Central" A place for notes, messages, math problems, house plans, list, assignments, art work.....the list just goes on and on.
She is a Very wise woman, She wouldn't be a healthy, happy, funny 99 year old woman otherwise. We all love her dearly.
So lately as the grandchildren come to visit her, she'll ask them to take a walk around her home and let her know if there is anything they want when she passes. The thought of her ever leaving is really just too sad to think of. So as much as I would love to have snooped around..... That really is one of my favorite things to do afterall, I just felt too guilty.
The truth is, I just want her house. (haha) It's an old brick farmhouse that my grandpa built during the depression. I dream about living there all the time. But not to sound to greedy, I did tell my grandma I would love to have her Straw Hats. When I think about my Grandma Nora, I picture her wearing a plaid shirt, most likely one of my grandpa's old ones, and a straw hat. I see her out in her garden with her chickens trailing behind her.... This is the image I will Always have of her.
By displaying her hats around my home, it would remind me of her beautiful spirit everyday. But what am I blabbing about, Grandma Nora is not going anywhere. I can't wait to see her turn 100!!!!
I found some pictures of using straw hats as home decor, This is a collection I hope to one day have.
Just one hat here, but I had to add this picture, I love it. Sorry, I don't know where I found it.
