#grandmaskitchen #memories #auctionday — in Trenton, Missouri.
the smells from this tiny room.....always cold RC on the bottom shelf of the fridge. when you arrived, Grandma would whip up a pitcher of iced tea and a cake, lickety-split. we had breakfast at the tiny kitchen table, and supper too, when it was just Grandma & Grandpa and us girls. doing dishes with cousins after family dinners...dishing up your leftovers to take home in butter bowls...we took Grandma a cake for her 90th birthday. she blew out her candles and ate her cake at that tiny table. they had their prescriptions and over the counter medications lined up on the windowsills in easy reach. there was a lot of love in that tiny house.
at our family Xmas my sister Lisa gave me some photos she had taken at Grandma & Grandpa's the day of the auction.
I just started crying. these are beautiful pictures of a beautiful house filled with beautiful memories. thanks, Lisa.
if you look closely through the lattice, you can see the brick steps of the old front porch. Us grandkids would jump up and down the steps, off the concrete bannisters across the sidewalk, and collect rubber bands in the rocks by the porch from the daily newspaper. It was also a good spot to just hang out. #grandmagraceandgrandpavermals #memories #auctionday — in Trenton, Missouri.
