Told you my grandma was a fox! I love her bathing suit. Especially standing next to that awesome car. Wouldn't it be cool if my family still had that car?
My grandma Betty, my mom's mom, was an interior designer. She always had the coolest outfits throughout the 60s and 70s. I always love looking through our old photos of her. She also was an avid antique collector, along with my grandpa. My family lives in their old house now, they both passed away a little over 10 years ago. The house is filled with amazing things. Lots of Native American artifacts including baskets, ceramic, tools, a peace pipe, masks, all kinds of things. My friends and I always called our loft "the museum," because that's where all of that lives. I definitely think that I have been influenced by growing up around all of those amazing old things.
Maybe sometime I'll show you some of the more interesting pieces.
What cool things did your grandparents have in their home? Were they collectors?
Next week, as long as she's ok with it, a really great picture of my mom when she was younger. Then, we'll move on to my collected vintage photos filled with very interesting strangers!
