The End of an Era

My mom handed the keys of her old home over to the new owners this evening. Just before she did that, I was instructed by my daughter to snap this bit of typopgraphy:
She has kept a record of her grandchildren's heights [and the neighbour's kids too] over the past 16 years.  Around birthday time, she would take the children out to the garage and mark their height and add the date. That piece of history will probably be painted over by the new owners so, so I am glad Christy reminded me to do this!
I am busy getting ready for the i♥market at the moment.  The plan is to have quite a few new and tweaked products on my stand.  This week has been busy with my mom's move, so I will have to introduce you to some of them next week. Tomorrow I turn 21 for the 30th time, so I have to fit some celebrating in too!
See you on Saturday!

That's a lot of memories on that wall. I'm glad you were able to photograph it!

That's lovely! I found something similar when I stripped the paint off a doorframe in our house; I later found out that the names were those of my neighbour's grandchildren!
