I Remember My Grandmother's House

memories of grams, etc. 354 People

    The Heart Of My Childhood

    Everything that was good about my formative years revolved around my Grandma's house.  I have so many happy memories at her home...and now that she is gone...there is a large chunk of the light in my life that has forever gone black.

    I Do Too!

    My father's mother lived right next door to me.  As a young boy, it was a fun way to get out from under my mother's thumb for a few hours.

    Gran!

    I remember my grans home because I haven't had the chance to forget it, she's still in the same old with the same red curtains, rosemary bush and smells of banana cake. I love it and her :)

    Every Week

    I walk by it whenever I am going to get groceries remembering everything that was there. I know the house was remodeled and wonder what it looks like these days with the people living there now.

    Fondly

    My grandparents lived in a large Victorian house on the corner of two streets downtown. I loved to visit because I was very close to my grandmother. Now that I'm an adult, I realize it's because we are so much alike, and I'm proud of that. Her house always smelled so great...

    Grandparent's House

      While she lived there for only about three more years after my grandfather died, I guess I always thought of it more as my grandmother's house.  He had it custom built and had the contractor put in many of the touches that she had long wanted - the built-in...
