Memaw’s House!

As y’all know, family is one of the most important things in the world to me. I am so so thankful for the amazing family that God has blessed me with. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I would share some pictures from my Memaw’s house that I took a few weeks ago.

I love Memaw’s house.  It’s so unique and cozy….er, I mean that it’s at least 85 degrees…year round! Ha!  For holidays we always gather at Memaw’s and sometimes we even open the windows on Christmas to cool the house down a bit, but don’t tell Memaw that!

Memaw and Granddaddy built this house many moons ago.

Authentic vintage at it’s finest.

These chairs have so many stories to tell.  So many wonderful memories.

Granddaddy and Memaw with Chico their dog….many years ago.   Aren’t they cute?!

I love these pictures that were made for a church directory.  Man, this is making me miss my Granddaddy something fierce. {sniff}Memaw would have my hide if she knew that I took this picture, much less, be posting it on my blog for the world to see.  Ha! But, this is a memory I don’t want to forget.  I frequently roll Memaw’s hair on Saturday nights for church on Sunday.  It’s like therapy for me.

I wrote a  tribute to my grandparents last year.  I’m so thankful to have Memaw still here with us.  She will be 96 years old in July.

Do you have a fond memory of your grandparents?


  1. I love this post! Your Memaw is adorable! My grandparents practically raised me and they both have a very special place in my heart. Thanks for sharing and reminding me of some great times!

  2. Love it!! The smell of Noxzema reminds me of my Granny and I sure do miss her buttermilk biscuits and a yellow cake that had this amazing homemade fudge frosting only she knew how to make. My husband’s grandmother was a wise and godly woman- I very much miss talking with her when we go back to MI.

  3. First of, I love the word Memaw. So cute!, and very unique.
    I remember when my grandma used to let me brush her hair. I was little, and I loved to comb hair, and come up with “fancy” dos. She was the only one who would let me :o) God bless her in heaven.
    have a lovely day!

  4. You are so right…she’d have your hide! But what a woman she is! Wonderful memories we cherish!

  5. *Sniff* I think I miss Granddaddy more and more each year! And oh boy,… if those chairs could talk! 😉 So many wonderful memories! I cannot believe you posted that picture of her with the rollers in!! ha!! Memaw would certainly have your hide, and then some!! 😉

  6. My own maternal grandparents were very special. My homelife had a very non-traditional start “back in the day”, but they treated just as special and precious as any other beloved grandchild. I learned much about love and gentleness from my grandfather. He was the kindest, gentlest, best tempered, well loved man in our church growing up. I still hear stories about him from time to time even though I’m not in that area anymore. They really were my second parents.

    Grandparents nowadays don’t realize the influence they have (or can have) on their grandchildren today. Especially godly ones. So many young people are growing up in less than loving homes today, with parents who are emphasising such shallow things. Grandparents can be such a blessing and teach wonderful life lessons.

  7. It’s always seems nice to remember all the memories related to the old house and the parents..especially Granny!! She is the wonderful personality i ever saw!

    Your post remind me of her!

    Thanks! keep posting!

  8. Oh My-Lanta! This post made me think of my sweet Granny who died when I was just 5 years old. I am 32 now and miss her so very much. I am so glad that you still have your Memaw and that our girls still have their Mimi and GrandDad. Oh boy, what a blessing grandparents are!
