Moments of Memories.......

It's funny how certain things in our daily life will trigger a certain memory.  Music does this for some people so do certain smells and that is what happened to me yesterday.

I was busy working on a new apron for my shop, I was ironing the pieces for the waistband and ties and had to use a little spray starch.  The smell of that starch immediately made me think of my Grandmother.  Memaw as she was known to me, I loved her to the moon and back and would stay with her every chance I got.  Just that little burst of scent took me back to when I was child happily playing in her kitchen as she was doing her ironing. Something I hadn't thought about in such a long time.  It was a wonderful feeling and made me smile, such a blessing to me.

This was taken at Christmas in 1988, Memaw and some of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The little girl leaning up against her- My daughter who is now all grown up with 3 children of her own.

I was able to sail right on through making my new apron with such a smile on my face. Memaw would be proud I believe, she could sew anything! 

The body of the apron is made from a vinyl recycled tablecloth, perfect for using while working in the garden  as you can just take a damp cloth to wipe the dirt off the apron body.  You can read all about my latest apron here.

I now have 3 grandchildren of my own, I hope when they grow up something so simple will trigger a good memory of them playing happily at Nona's house.  As I love them to the Moon and Back just like I loved Memaw and she loved me!
