{Silent Sunday: My Grandmother’s Sewing Room}

When you walk into my grandmother’s sewing room, you are immediately taken to another time.  The walls are tastefully decorated with cherished relics from earlier days.  A toy of my father’s when he was just a little boy, pictures of my sister and I when we were children (see above), memorabilia from trips she and my grandfather took together… and a dress that she made herself, along with a picture of her wearing it while on a trip (I believe they were in Cuba).

This also acts as a bedroom and, as a boy, I would stay in there when I visited.  I was always struck by everything that was there and would spend hours looking over each item.

You often hear how the walls of a room must house a thousand stories. They were talking about this room. It’s a beautiful little spot tucked away for your grandmother to sew and look back on the past. Really great stuff. Love this spot.

Gosh, I love this post, Brian. I am a wee bit fascinated with nostalgia, and your photos gave me chills. I particularly love the photo of your grandparents in Cuba, but they are all gorgeous. Thanks for sharing–it was such a neat spin on Silent Sunday! xo

Mmnnn. . . I LOVES me some sewing!

Son los hilos de nuestras vidas que son tejidos juntos y las el cosido de nuestras colchas que se conviertenos en un tejido.
