Christmas at my great-great grandparents home, 1898

On this blog I post a lot of old family recipes, and talk about my love of Southern things and people.  I wanted to share this 1898 newspaper article from my home town newspaper.  My hero, mentor, role model and very special grandmother was one of this lovely couple's grandchildren, and was at this Christmas celebration.  I would have loved to have been there!  Merry Christmas y'all!


  1. Isn't this fabulous?!?!:)I'm amazed at how you managed to keep this vintage treasure!!!This is really a priceless heirloom to keep and pass on to the following generations.Thanks for sharing this treasured part of your family with us:)

  2. Sudha...as much as I love cooking, it is my second love as far as hobby interests go. My main focus is genealogy research....which tends to become an obsession. ;) I have been at it about 25 years, and have been fortunate enough to unearth a few treasures like this.
