Thinking about Vintage....

This is what I envision when I think about vintage... the everyday people. This is a photo of my maternal Grandparents in the 40's-50's.  I miss them very much... they were such a big part of my life while growing up.  It's too bad that families aren't like that these days.... I have fond memories of them being around - Bubba helping out with house repair stuff and Gramma helping with gardening, cooking, & cleaning.  Spend the nights at their house were always special!  Bubba would let me play with the big block batteries and light bulbs and show me how current worked... Gramma would let me hang out in the kitchen with her....  yes, fond memories!

My sewing room has been gutted!!

I hope everybody had a reall nice Holiday and are looking forward to a Happy New Year!!

Sorry I haven't been online all week!!  My hubby took the week off and we spent the entire time in the basement addressing some issues ....  lack of insulation a couple leaks, etc... you know, the typical fun stuff that comes along with home ownership! LOL

Anyways, my sewing room has been found to be a major leak of air and so everything had to come out... the drywall will be coming out and insulation will be put in the walls... don't know why it wasn't done in the 80's when the house was built!!!???

The window also needs to be replaced and insulated around.....   He has promised to once again make it a nice sewing area for me.

To be continued.....   I'll take a photo when it's done!
