From My Grandmother's House

The newest treasures in our house are very special to me.  The glasses, furniture, and framed prints were all in my grandparents' house when I was a little girl.  I love having things from my grandmother's house in my house.  It makes our house cozier, and I love thinking of her whenever we use the dishes or sit on the sofa.

These glasses look great with our accent plates in our everyday pattern and our fine china pattern.


I added one of her cookbooks to my library... if I only had her roll recipe!  Her rolls would melt in your mouth, but she won't tell a soul the recipe. 

I almost did not get this shelf, but once painted it will be a great addition to our mudroom.

I used to take afternoon naps on this sofa when I would visit my grandmother.  The fabric screams early 90's right now, but I see potential. See the similar sofa in the photo below.

This table is great for keeping my plants off the floor right not, but once again I see more potential in the future.
These prints are great, but the really great part is the convex glass in the frames.  It does not really show up in the photos, but trust me, it is pretty groovy.

And finally one of my aunts gave me these stools.  They fit perfectly under our temporary island table.  That table is a story in itself for another day.
