I made quite the little country kitchen in honor of Big Grandma's house, and I thought it would work perfectly for the challenge at: Global Design Project Blog 
I used an older stampin up set from 1995 for the old wood burning oven.  My Big Grandma had one in her home and as a child I use to love to lift the cast iron lids on top to watch the fire burning.   She also had a party line phone, but that's a topic for a whole different day.  😉  I remember the bacon grease / lard always in a pan on the back burner, waiting to be used for some delicious meal.   Now as far as I can remember Big Grandma didn't have portraits hanging in the kitchen, but I thought it looked cozy with the floral wallpaper, to have some grandbaby pictures there.  I also added some delightful wainscoting with trim by using my embossing folder.   I actually used 3 different stamping up sets for this card.  Can you guess which ones?   I did a bit of water coloring, and as you can see  it is still a work in progress for me, but a dear friend sent me a link to watch on techniques so hopefully someday I'll get it. I hope you like my take on this fun challenge.
Perhaps I should post Big Grandma's Mayonnaise Cake recipe.  Let me know if you would like that?
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  I'm looking forward to reading your comments.  
Keep Smiling 😊Keep Stamping


  1. This card brought back so many memories to me. I remember sitting on a stool in front of my Nanny's stove to keep warm and watched in amazement how she would be able to make the fire the right heat to cook on. We are so spoiled today with all our modern conveniences. I would love to see the recipe. Thanks so much for reminding of all the good memories today!!

  2. What lovely memories our Theme Challenge have made for you, Patty. This is truly a delightful project fitting for this weeks GDP Challenge. Thankyou for playing along.

  3. WOW! Love that stove. The two silhouettes watching the stove are adorable :)
