You Will Be Missed

My Grandma at 13 at her confirmation, Spring 1933.

I felt like I needed to do a little post to explain my unexpected absence from blogging these past few weeks. On Thanksgiving, my dear Grandma passed away. It was incredibly sad, but peaceful. We are all comforted by knowing she is in a better place and not in pain anymore.

I know I have blogged about my wonderful Grandma before, sharing some of her vintage photos and I plan to continue; to remember her and honer her life. She was a huge part of my life and was my biggest vintage fan. She always loved to see the neat stuff I found at sales and thrift stores. I definitely inherited my love of a bargain and jewelry from her, thanks Grandma!

She was so beautiful! It's sweet that you were able to share so much together and that you reminded her of her younger years. I can't wait to see more of her vintage pics!

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss...how wonderful that you got to have such beautiful experiences with her, though. I know I treasure my memories of my beloved grandmother who passed when I was 19 and whenever I miss her so much it hurts, I remember how lucky I was to have had her in my life as such a strong, talented, and nurturing figure (many people I know never knew their grandmothers or had grandparents who were too frail or alzheimer's ridden to have a deeper personal connection). My thoughts are with you...though I know your beautiful grandmother will be with you always.

Sorry to hear about your Grandmother's passing. What a lovely way to pay tribute to her life. I always enjoy hearing stories and seeing pictures about times gone by, so I look forward to your upcoming posts about your Grandmother's life!

I am sorry for your loss. That picture is beautiful. It looks like she is holding a diploma, was it her graduation?

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I was very close to my Nan too and I think about her often and talk about her all the time. She had a wealth of little sayings and I use so many of them with the prefix 'as my Nan used to say'
I'm looking forward to hearing more about yours.
