velhas... memórias // old... memories

Bem se leram o meu post de ontem já adivinharam o que é isto!!! Exactamente! Aquilo que recebi da minha mãe!
Os meus avós paternos e maternos eram agricultores ainda do tempo em que se era quase autosustentável e se fazia tudo em casa incluindo roupa de vestir, toalhas de casa-de-banho e roupa de cama. Pois! Isto foi parte do que coube á minha mãe e que ninguém queria! Não são lindas as cores?!!? E pensar que alguns ainda foram colhidos e fiados pela minha bisavó!!! Ainda não pensei o que fazer a grande parte disto! Vou ter de pensar em algo!
Boa semana!

Ok! If you read my previous post you already know what this is! Exactly! This is what was inside the bag that my mother gave me!
All my grandparents were farmers still from the time in which one would do almost everything at home. And that included clothes, bathroom towels and bedsheets. You know how it was! This was part of what my mother brought and that nobody wanted! Lucky me, heim?!?! Look at the colours!! aren't they just gorgeous?! And to think that some of it was still grown and weaved by my greatgrandmother!!!! I still haven't thought what to do with it! Some i'll keep defenitely for me!; some i'll probably sell! Other i'll use to make things for my dawanda! I don't know! What do you think?!?! My sister doesn't like any of this and i have so many!
Happy new week!!!

My grandma was also brought up on a farm and told me about growing the flax and coming it and make yarn and weave there own fabrik to make clothes and towels and bedlinen. Beautifyl craftmanship.

Rosa good morning hurrah someone with the guts to say something ! I really appreciate that I put provcative things on from time to time and I agree with your comments entirely . There is so much pretty talk, which is all fine and well for a while but there is so much that is wrong and NOT pretty Thanx for taking the time Im always amazed that the human comparisons which i make go entirely unnoticed, ah well phaps i should try writing a book instead of hiding in a blog ??!!!!
