A Woman of Inspiration.

You can imagine how I love this.

Lovely blues, my favorite color.  And Roses.

Elfrieda Baumeister.

Or Grandma as she was better known to us.

I received a box in the mail from Lisa, my sister in law.
The box was full of Grandma items.  I was overwhelmed when I opened it.


And I think I actually swooned (yes, we do swoon down here in the South) when I saw this!

Grandma Baumeister was an amazingly creative woman.  She was born and raised in Germany and fled to Alaska before the war.  And she filled her life with beautiful things that she made.

She was a woman I admired.

I don't blame you at all for swooning. That's a lovely picture of Gramma and she did indeed have lovely things. I'm happy you received them.

What a wonderful gift to remember someone so special! I treasure the things I have that belonged to my Grandma and Great Grandma. My Great Grandma was a cook though and had no interest in fiber arts. LOL. She did leave me wonderful cast iron though.
