There was a time not so long ago when woman spent their free time doing some type of creative, artistic, activity. My family had their share. I must say I was inspired by them all. My great-grandmother yes, great-grandmother was born in 1884 lived to be 95, I was 15 when she went to heaven. I loved her so much. She could tell some amazing stories. I enjoyed hearing them over and over again.Grammy made free hand quilts/blankets. Not a QUILTED quilt, she used scraps of used fabric or odd pieces that didn't sell. Her pattern was a 4x4 ceramic tile. She would cut out squares by the hundreds and sew the squares together then add batting etc. The quilts were basic, simple & primitive looking at times. She made them for her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren & before she passed she made them for the two great, great, grandchildren she was blessed with. I will share Grammy's quilt @ another time.
Now onto the PINK post of today. I really was surrounded by very creative woman. I just thought a little family history would paint a better picture.
My Great Aunt Minnie was the most artistic of all the ladies in my life. I have mentioned her before in a few other posts. Her art was super great!! she painted on canvas, she painted on ceramics and porcelain. Aunt Minnie had two studios in her home. The big studio is where she made her ceramics and porcelain, she kept a huge klin there and designed some of her own molds.The smaller one is where she painted and shared the space with her husband, my Uncle made doll houses (not from kits) I will share my beautiful house he made for me another time. Today I'm sharing with you all a pendant my Aunt designed and painted. PINK ROSES. She gave this to my mother many years ago. I inherited it after my mom passed away. I'm thinking of a way to display it out in the open where all can enjoy it. I hope you all have enjoyed the creative ladies of my life. There is one more lady to be lifted up, that's Beverly@How Sweet the Sound. She is the hostess of PINK SATURDAY. please be sure to visit her and all the other PINK ladies.
