In the early 1900's my great grandmother Eliza Anne used to make butter and sell it to the grocery store in town. Luckily my aunt still had some of the parchment butter wrappers and gave me some about three years ago. I have always wanted one framed to hang in my kitchen and finally... ta-da! I had envisioned a pricey custom frame, but instead I used a $1.50 thrift store eighties number and after averting my eyes from it's peach hue, I painted it cream. It's 5.5"x6.5"... just right I think; it may get distressed a bit yet... that can always come later. Mrs. Robin needed a spring kerchief and I had to get out a coordinating salt & pepper.
My great grandparents and my grandmother (circa 1920) on Garden Hill Farm with one of the first cars in the area.
Four generations: me, my dad, grandma Gladys and great grandma Eliza Anne, the butter maker from Garden Hill Farm. Thank you for stopping by!
