Way Cool Wednesday | Grandma Rosie

Originally my way cool thing to blog about was going to be the iPad.  YES it is more than an oversized iPod Touch!  I haven’t quite figured it out yet though since my husband is holding it hostage and not sharing.  Instead, I’ve found some way cooler stuff  that didn’t even come from a store.  They came from our own Grandma Rosie’s farm house in the Ozarks and they will make you way more jealous than a lousy iPad. :)  Grandma Rosie is my husband’s grandmother and my six year old’s great grandmother and we were able to visit her this past weekend.

There is so much to photograph at Grandma’s.  From the beautiful mountains, unique barns, wildflowers galore, and the greenest grass you’ve ever seen.  Exhibit 1:  and proof I was there.  (Enjoy it – I hate being in front of the camera.)  By the way, I got major shin splints from this hike.

Hey mom.  This is called a C-O-W.  We don’t pet these. (That’s another blog.)

Photographers, look at that moss.  How’d you like that as a background?  Gorgeous huh?

But even more than the beauty of the environment are the stories.  There is so much history in that land and Rosie has done such a wonderful job archiving it.  Her home is covered in pictures and relics some over 100 years old and each has a tale to go with it.  She has stories of ghosts and previous owners and family history that could easily make best sellers.

Note the date on this wedding photograph.  They look so young and scared to death!

Rosie’s craft room is so cool.  The light through the windows streams out over everything – old paperbacks, plants and flowers, built ins full of bobbles, pin cushions, and quilt squares.  My macro and I had a good time.

I will have to show off some of the beautiful quilts she has created here.   Absolutely amazing.   Until then, happy Wednesday and don’t forget to appreciate your loved ones, your family, and all of the history that has happened before you!

    I love the images you captured – I miss my grand parents and wish they were still here. What a wonderful time for your family to get together – in such a beautiful spot.

  • You are so right – WAY cooler than an iPad (which I refuse to believe if anything more than an iTouch on steroids! But don’t hate me for that… I’m a Mac girl through and through.)

    Love all the little details you captured, but mostly the old wedding photo. I love thinking that one day, 80-90 years from now, someone will be holding photographs that we created.

    Love these! We go to the Ozarks every year. She looks like a sweet, sweet lady!

    Awwww, those are the most precious phtoos!!! I wish that I had gotten really nice photographs made when my girls were tiny…not that I don’t treasure those snaps my hubby took of me,exhausted, with hair hanging in strings, and baby, face half-obscured by a blanket, but it would be nice to have something a little more….artistic. ;-)
