Dusting Powder & Ice Tea



Mamaw Eden and Grandma Garretson were such important figures in my life. They both been gone for many years, but the memories never fade.

These are some of the things that I associate with my grandmother's that keeps my memories alive.

Ice Tea

Dusting Powder
Handmade quilts
Handkerchiefs
House dresses
Throw rugs

My memories are full of love for each of these special ladies. I lost one of them when I was around 16 and the other when I was around 32. But my love is as strong today as it was when I was a little girl and wrapped up in their arms.
