Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: Day Four — Inheriting the previously inherited

Welcome to my fourth post for the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I was invited by Terri from https://terriwebsterschrandt.wordpress.com/ to participate in this blog series.

The theme for my challenge is “Inheriting my Grandparent’s crap” 🙂


Macrame Bottles

Macrame Bottles

My Grandfather had a sister, her name was Mima.  She never married or had children.

When she passed away, her belongings appear to have gone to my Grandparents.   I don’t believe for a second because they were sentimental about Mima’s possessions, but more they had the need to keep everything, as they were hoarders.  So when they passed, I inherited the inheritance from Mima.

I don’t remember Mima, as I was 2 years old when she passed away.  What I can tell you about Mima was that she was a very much into her needlecraft.  I can tell you this because I ended up with a lot of it.  Primarily embroidery thread and macrame.

There was a huge amount of embroidery that we ended up with, thats long gone to charity or sold online, as we didn’t know which items were one’s Mima had created and which were likely picked up from charity shops by my Grandparents.

What I do know though, is that she created the Macramé wraps on these bottles.

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you. Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. And actually everyone can join in. So feel free to if you like the idea.
I would like to invite JF from https://closetoeighty.wordpress.com to join this challenge. As I said, it is totally up to each individual to accept whether they wish to participate.
