Since I still feel I am surrounded by Christmas, I thought I would pull up some older photos for Pink Saturday. You have seen my Pink bedroom at 1515 but not at my house. Here are the pictures but I want to focus on the quilt.
This is my bedroom/computer room at home. The chandelier is from my husband's house he grew up in. I found it in the attic and his parents had taken it down to put up a ceiling fan...I grabbed it!
The stroller is my mothers' at that is a post for another day.
The bed is my canopy bed from home, I had to take the canopy off to put up the chandelier.
The quilt is what I wanted you to look at...you notice one on the bed and an identical one folded up at the end of the bed?
After my Grandmother died, my Mother found two quilt tops pieced together all ready to be quilted. They would of been done by my Great Grandmother and they are pink! My home town is a few miles from an Amish community so she found someone to finish the tops by hand. She had just one done, and had it on her bed. I guess my Mom loved having a pink bedroom too!
When I bought my house in 1995 she had the other one finished so I could put it in the pink bedroom at my house. Yes, when I moved in this bedroom was already pink! I thought it was so nice that we had the same looking quilts at our home. After my Mom died the 2 quilts, now finished were reunited. To know they were made by my Great Grandmother, held for years by my Grandmother, covered my Mother every night....is a way to start the New Year with a smile on my face and a heart so full.
Happy New Year!
Thanks for following me and letting me a part of your life by sharing my Sentimental Life.
