I think I am back!
A beautiful mahogany bookcase!
It belonged to my Grandmothers sister and the family genealogist.
Fred has been so generous to bring all of her records, diaries, letters and various other things that belonged to my Great Grandparents.
He told me it always sat in the front room in her farmhouse with all her things in it that I now have.
So I was able to empty out 3 Rubbermaid bins of the diaries and put them back where they belong.
Here Fred and I are after I got all my Grandparents pieces we own in the top 2 shelves and then pictures and Aunt Annie's books.
It looks so good in the dining room of 1515. My brother has the one similar my Grandparents had in the same spot
You can kind of make it out in the upper left corner.
This picture was taken in 1977 for my Grandfathers 90th birthday. Yes, that is me on the very right.
Looks like we still like having our picture taken in the same spot.
Mary to my left and Marty 2nd from the right are in the 1977 picture with me.
It was one of the good things that happened while I was on vacation. 1515 is such a healing place for all of us. The stress seems to be gone when we are they and it is replaced my laughs, and old and new memories of the love we have for our family.
