It's impossible to turn around inside the house without seeing multiple African violets. She even accidentally bred this speckled one. Also around the house are my grandma's paintings. She used to do a lot of tole painting.
She also has a large collection of tea cups from all over the world. I always love to hear her tell their stories.
During this trip, my grandma pulled out some treasures that I'd never seen before. This is the recipe box that she put together for her 9th grade home ec. class (she's 90, now).
Also for the same class, she was required to put together a sample book of sewing stitches and techniques. Since I've just started sewing, I found it particularly interesting.
She also had to sketch designs of her own clothing. She's quite artistic.
While there, I also got to do a little "shopping" around her house. I accidentally came across this box of scarves, many of which are vintage. I didn't take all of them, but I did take a few.
I also raided her button stash.
