lylah's middle name namesakes are both my maternal and paternal grandmothers, both named ruth. these are grandmother's baby utensils. i absolutely die for them. so beautiful.
these dishes were also grandmother's when she was a child. she has an article that shows they were made in the early 1900s. what a treasure.
this bench (and its partner in another place in the house) were built by grandmother's father, my great-grandfather. grandmother more recently upholstered them.
i can remember marveling over this silver monogramed mirror and brush set as a little girl. they were a gift to grandmother from granddaddy.
the most popular room in the house, the TV room. where lots and lots of ncaa tournament basketball was watched. college basketball is huge in north carolina, acc country, and my grandparents are not exempt. they are all over it.
