Our first stop is the kitchen. Please note the rotary dial phone and two slice toaster. The toaster works, the phone does not.
Next stop...I spent many rainy summer days as a child looking out that window wishing the rain would stop. Number One Son is wishing for a TV...or a computer....anything?
Now, on to the sofa. It looks better than it sits. And don't you just love that groovy lamp!?
Please notice that we are keeping with a beachy theme with all the shells...Every last one was found on the beach by a family member over the years.
Ugly, yet comfy chair and another groovy lamp. Please pay special attention to the afghan on the back of the chair made by my sweet grandmother...I spent a lot of time in this chair working on my on projects this trip.
And another ugly, comfy chair. I'm loving the artwork.
I call this the parent bedroom. When I was a child, my grandparents stayed in this room. When we would go to the beach with my parents, they would stay in this room. Keeping with that tradition, Car Guy and I stayed here as well.
I call this the children's room. I stayed here as a child and I put The Boys in here this trip.
Please notice the kites in the corner and the pictures on the mirror (done by my cousin's daughters). This is in keeping with this being the children's room.
This is my grandmother's rain slicker that she used to wear when she was fishing. She's been gone for several years, but I can still see her and my granddaddy fishing on the beach. The little sign says "Old fisherman never die...they just smell bad." I wish that were true.
Well, I hope you enjoyed your trip back in time. I'm not sure what decade we went to....I guess late 50's or early 60's. This trip was made possible by the lovely couple above who purchased the house before I was ever born and helped fill it with tons of love and amazing memories. I look forward to making more with my husband and children.
