House Of Curiosities

I spent the better part of the weekend at my Grandmother's house. My mother is also in town from Washington State for my upcoming graduation, so it was a meeting of three generations. We celebrated Mother's Day and my Grandmother cooked some of my favorite meals.
These pictures I snapped in her basement. She collects vintage Coca Cola memorabilia. It's really a magnificent basement to wander around in.

  46. Wow! I love both outfits and that collection is super. Have you ever read The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton? I ask because you remind me of the heroine because of a) your beauty and b) your taste for surroundings that suit you - your 1st outfit is very vintage Coca-Cola-y, if that makes any sense!

    ReplyDelete

  78. I love your Grandmother's basement! It has a museum quality to it. I had a cousin who collected Coca Cola memorabilia also, he worked there for years. Is Coca Cola a favorite drink of hers?

  92. I have this fascination for anything coca cola. Despite me being acidic. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  93. Wow, that green dress is amazing. I love going to grandparents' houses. For some reason, my grandparents' house brings back more nostalgia for me than my parents'. Probably because I don't go there as often. Love the Coke stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  94. The second outfit is my favorite, I love the polka dots. My dad has an old coca-cola radio, lol.
