Travel Theme: HANDMADE… by Nanny

 

This week’s travel theme from Where’s my Backpack? is… HANDMADE. Having grown up in a household where it seemed EVERYTHING was handmade, right down to my knickers, it wasn’t hard to find something appropriate for this theme!

Handmade by Nanny

This is just one of the many intricate little cushions my mother has made over the years. Very few had the frill that this particular cushion has.

Normally after decorating the square my Darling Dad would mount them on painted-board whereby mum would either sell or adorn the house with yet another of her creations.

Miss Twelve is now the owner of this cushion and she couldn’t be prouder. She loved everything my mother created. Oh how she loved walking into her Nanny’s house to follow the creative trail to discover what the latest project was.

  1. This is utterly beautiful. I can imagine how pleased your daughter is to have this, and what a wonderful tribute to your mum that her granddaughter appreciates the beautiful things she made 🙂

    • Thank you. And I tend to think this admiration makes my daughter forgive my mother for constantly forgetting her name, referring to her as “the girl”, poor thing, lol! 😉
