Simple Things – Part 1

There are a number of things at Grandma’s house that are available to be shared with the family. Some things have long been promised, but others are available for anyone who would like to have a memory, something lovely, something useful, or perhaps all three.

Here is a partial view of things. If any of these are of interest, let one of us know.
