http://cherryhillcottage.typepad.com/cherryhill_cottage/I had to write about my Grandmother & her TussY! When my grandmother passed away, her Samsonite ended up in Mama's garage. When I was visiting Mama for her 67th birthday recently, I asked again for the luggage and she let me have it! Thanks Mom! I thought it would be cool to place her luggage in the guest room. When I arrived home I was proudly looking for the right spot to place. I opened the suitcase to all of her personal belongings. I could not believe all of her favorite personal items packed just so-so! I smiled when I saw the Tussy and the Emeraude! Those two items were staples in the personal hygiene department!
Please notice in the photo.. pictures of Jesus, her Tussy, Emeraude, her little black beaded coin purse handle held together with a paper clip, her white socks, the 2 little rings (she loved costume jewelry!) and the Cover Girl compact. My grandmother never drove, so when she came for a visit she always had the Samsonite!!
So if you reading this and you see a ladybug appear in the strangest place, or a hummingbird zip by your kitchen window, the first Tulip bloom, the dogwood bloom early, it's her passing through.
Grandma, you are in my mind daily, your apron hangs in my kitchen, your photo next to my kitchen sink. I share our stories with your great-great grandson Wesley ever time we cook in the kitchen. In my day your memories, your stories, your legacy are always present!
Hugs to all... Hug your Grandmother if you are so blessed to have her!
