Haven't Left yet.. A blast from the past.
Wow what a morning, my Mom has had this old trunk downstairs in the basement forever and ever. We had opened it a few times but never really went inside to look..don't know why. Today my youngest child Steven brought it up stair and Mom screamed but I told her to relax. Let's check it out for once..So Stevie open it up and started pulling all these amazing picture of the past.
there is linen and some of it got ruined but there are a few things that are okay and maybe I can fix them and reserve them for a while longer.
The crochet work is amazing, very fine must have been a find needle...
This is a head piece the woman wore under neath the head scarves Mom said..
There is my great grandmother with the head piece on...the lady in the middle. My great grandmother did all her own clothes everything..all the linen crocheted is hers.
I have had an amazing day looking through the trunk. found papers from back when I think the oldest was 1919 a school item. There is so much I can't even get it all on here but just a little for you to see. I did tell you that I was Russian rite? Russian German mostly some Irish and Scott from my dad's side..
This one I'm going to wash and put on my little kitchen table..I love the vibrate colors, lately turquoise has been growing in my kitchen..lol.
