Over the river and through the woods...

Yesterday I visited my grandma. For those of you that know me, you know how much I love to collect antique junk. My family holds the motto to "SAVE EVERYTHING!" Which is a trait that I have clearly inherited. My grandma is also the person who first taught me to sew. She has more fabric than most fabric stores, so I'm always making trips out to visit her to dig through her massive amount of fabric scraps. Yesterday, I actually remembered to take my camera out with me and was able to take a few photos.

Yes, my grandparents live out in farm country. They were just finishing up bailing the hay when I arrived.

A family that collects, literally everything! This is just a portion of my grandpa's golf ball collection.

This room used to be an old garage. They remodeled it a few years ago into "The Boardroom" where they can display more antiques and my grandmother's amazing quilts.

These are just a FEW of the gorgeous quilts my grandma has made.

Hello, I was looking at the golf balls you have here. Would you be interested in selling any of them?
