I was searching for a blue piece to share
with Sally today.
I found a piece of history.....
My husband's Grandmother Charlotte was
a Southern Belle by birth but a
very loyal York Pennsylvanian by heart.
She was an interesting mix of both.
Such a lady.
The man she married had a house built for
her in the city of York, Pa in a time
when the city was much smaller and
more rural in feel.
|It made a lovely mosaic for Mary too!!!|
As I came to know the family it was
obvious to me that Grandma Charlotte was proud
to hold pieces of history in her care.
This painting hung in her living room.
The artist is F. Marion Dyer.
It portrays a much simpler time
but one of community and action at the
We are honored to hold both the plate
and the painting in our care.
It is a heritage of which we are pleased.
Warren's Grandfather was a businessman
in the city of York.
He served in the Navy during WWII.
Grandma Charlotte worked in one of the
largest department stores for some time.
They were members of the Moravian Church
which holds a long history all its own.
It was a joy to attend Candlelight Christmas Eve
Services over the years.
This church held so much history and impressive
architecture...not to mention the traditional music
and readings of the service itself.
My husband enjoys...
a rich heritage indeed.
