Ok, I know, it's Monday 5:22pm central time, but I want to share my Tuesday Treasure with everyone this evening. Melody at House on the Side of the Hill in Australia always shares a Tuesday Treasure. If you would like to share something pop over to her site and join in.
Today I'm sharing my grandmother's hat. I can't tell you how old it is, but I know she wore that hat during the summer, while working in the garden, fishing and painting. She was always painting furniture.
She was a wonderful woman, born in Dec. 1900 and lived 82 years. I think of her often, sitting in her rocker, reading her victorian novels. I ask her one time for something to read and she said I could pick one but they were pretty risque'. God love her, I just giggled at that. She lived with us after my grandfather passed and one day I came home all upset over some boyfriend that I had split with and I will never forget her words to me. She said, "Everyone makes mistakes, you just have to chalk them up to experience, learn from it and keep on living." I can't tell you how many times I have repeated those words. So simple, but so true.
If you don't climb the mountain, you can't view the plain.
