Welcome to Aunt George's House

Welcome to my blogging house. Many know me as Aunt George. I came by that name because I have 13 nieces and nephews and they all call my Aunt or Auntie George. My sister is known to my children as Aunt Andy! Guess it just runs in the family.

At Aunt George's house, I hope to share many thoughts, feelings and happenings in my life with my many friends and family. Used to be in the not too distant past, one could just sit down after supper dishes were cleared and discuss with grandparents, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers about the happenings of the day, which field to plow or plant next, that cussed hatch of racoons hiding out in the baler or figure out who left the lid up in the outhouse! Today though, we are such a scattered nation, that a blog may be today's solution to the seperation of family and friends. Remember when you would yawn at the thought of another one of cousin Martha's long annual Christmas letters, but now a lump forms in your throat at the loss of those sweet lines of kinship. Hopefully here at Aunt George's house we can all be cousins, neighbors or aunties and uncles to each other.

So again, Welcome, grab a cup of tea, pull up a chair and let's chaw the fat awhile!

See Aunt George, I knew you could do it - This is very touching writing - you are so right about the lump in your throat for the loss of loved ones and the old ways of communication. I am so glad that I have gotten to have you as my friend - you are truly a kindred spirit!

Thank you Kathy, glad you stopped by. I am going to post a story about my great, great grandmother. It is called Grandmother Moon. I have always been drawn to the moon. Something about it makes me feel whole, if that makes any sense.
Love to you too my friend,
Aunt George

Aunt George,

Your aprons and your writings are beautiful. How I wish you lived by me. You seem like a kindred spirit. You've inspired me to keep on with my sewing and creating! Thanks for sharing.


Final thoughts...

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
