My Grandmother's Apron

My Grandmother's Apron
Please scroll down to the poem!

No one knows who wrote the original piece, but it's been changed over the years to adapt to all of our own memories of our grandmothers and aunts.  This picture is my Aunt Juanita who is the Matriarch of our Lunsford family from Georgia.  Aunt Juanita and Uncle O.D. have 3 children and I can't even tell you how many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. 

But I can tell you about some delicious meals and a lot of unconditional love coming from this beautiful woman!  Oh, all of you southern belles out there - you know G.R.I.T.S. Girls Raised In The South - she would serve up Fried Okra, Sweet Potato Casserole, Snap Peas, White Rice and Gravy, Fried Chicken, Baked Ham, Cornbread, Biscuits with Red-Eye Gravy....yum!  Then dessert would be the infamous Lunsford Pound Cake (keep reading for the recipe at the bottom of the page).

I hope you enjoy this poem and hope all of you have special memories of the special women in your lives.
My Grandmother's Apron

The principle use of Grandma's apron, was to protect the dress underneath, but along with that, it served as a holder for removing hot pans from the oven.

It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken-coop the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy children. And, when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms. Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen with that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls. In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that "old-time apron," that served so many different purposes.

Wine a Little (or a Lot)! How to Make a Back Splash out of Wine Corks

First off let me say that NO, I did not drink all of those bottles of wine.  Why is it that everyone asks me that question when they look at my gorgeous splash board.

Secondly, I want to let everyone know I did not glue the corks to the wall.  Recently I bought a mobile home that needs a lot of work.  Matter of fact one of my next blogs will be How to Paint Your Counter-tops to Look Like Granite!  But back to the splash board....

I was looking for some cork boards like I use when I make the wine cork bulletin boards, but this time around they were too expensive.  I was at Michael's and found some thick poster board for $1.00 a sheet.  I pieced two of them together by taping them together on the back.

I gathered up all of my collection of corks and started gluing.  I like to use E6000 as I have found in crafting that nothing falls off once glued down.  The size of this board, roughly 36 inches wide took 3 1/2 tubes of E6000. 

Since I'm also a quilter, I liked to put them in a pattern.  I literally took one cork at a time, rolled it to the good side (I like the maker stamp showing) and dabbed it with glue.  I did one half the first day and the 2nd half the following day.  If I did it over again, I would have painted the poster board first in a medium khaki color.

I put it up on the wall with some double-sided mounting table.  I taped 4 long strips along the width and was amazed - and happy - that when I put it up on the wall and pressed it, it stayed.

I just got the new stove and the new black range hood and have to say I am proud of the way it turned out. 

Note:  I glued it to the poster board in case I don't stay here long, I can remove it, paint the wall, and still have my beautiful splash board.

Starting Over in Sunny Cali

So you ask - what is MissSunnyGrits?  Everyone knows about G.R.I.T.S. (Girls Raised In the South).  I was born and raised in Florida.  Graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School.  At the time there were less true Floridians than "transplants"!  I do qualify because Florida really is in the South!  But, my father was born and raised in Southwest Georgia.  Since he was raising me and my sister we spent many years driving up the state to see Grandma Lunsford and visiting other aunts and uncles.  My relatives talk with so smoothing southern drawl and I easily slip in to it when I'm on the phone or visiting.

So...I was born in the Sunshine State and during late July, hence I'm a Leo, the Sun sign!  And I love grits, lol.  Especially with catfish.

Starting over in Sunny Cali?  After 2 marriages, the last one lasting 20 years, I realized how unhappy I was.  I wanted so much more in life - simple pleasures - smiles, laughs, sharing - and made a huge decision and packed up.  It was very scary in the beginning and there are still days that I think I make the worry lines on my face.  There are so many things I'd like to tell women that were in my situation but let me say, "Open your eyes.  Communicate.  Know what you have.  Know what is in the bank.  Know what your debts are and your assets."  For once, think of yourself (I know we are always last to think of our needs and desires).  We take care of our husband, our children, our homes - but do we take care of ourselves?

I consider myself an intelligent woman.  I've worked since I was 15.  That doesn't include the babysitting since I was about 10.  I climbed the corporate ladder.  I built my own house as a single woman, supported myself.  Then fell in love.  What happens?  The blinders go on?  Bottom line, in the divorce we compromised and I walked away with a New Beginning.  Debt free Asset free.  Yup, had nothing.  No income (we had recently both retired), no job, no money in the bank, no car, no place to live.

I knew that at this stage in my life, I wanted to live closer to one of my two sisters.  One was in Macon, Georgia; the other in La Mirada, California.  I chose Sunny Cali.  It's been a struggle.  I rented a room in a family's home, moved to a garage-turned bedroom with a bathroom, then to a single studio and now buying my 3 bedroom home!

I've had 5 jobs in 5 years, laid off of 3 of them within the first 6 months.  My last job lasted almost 3 years then the layoff came.  I moved 5 times in 5 years, it's been a struggle!  But, am I happy!  Yes, I love Long Beach, Cali!

In my new blog, I will be posting recipes, home improvement ideas, my favorites, and promoting my new business, It Works! Global.  I will also tell My Story as we go along and ways I've found to save money, improve my home, and stories of growing up in the south!  Stay with me...
