    17 Crafts That Remind You Of Your Grandma's House

    Crochet. Needlepoint. Cross Stitch. Tole Painting. There wasn't a craft Grandma couldn't do.

    1. Crocheted chevron afghan...

    Via etsy.com

    ...or granny square quilt

    Via etsy.com

    They were seriously the BEST to snuggle under.

    2. Fancy crocheted accessories in the bathroom

    Via etsy.com

    Bonus points if it also came with a crocheted seat cover and matching rug

    Via etsy.com

    These pieces complimented the dusty soap dish filled with rose soaps and/or liquid bath beads that you weren't supposed to use.

    3. Tole-painted goose

    Via etsy.com

    Oh, tole painting, how the lady of the 80's loved you so.

    4. Bent-over yard figurines

    Via timesunion.com

    I like big butt decorations and I can not lie.

    5. Doilies in all shapes and sizes

    Via etsy.com

    She may have even had this crocheted gem!

    Via etsy.com

    Doilies were a grandmother's decorating must-have.

    6. Crochet-topped hand towels

    These were particularly good to make for wedding showers or bunco gifts!

    7. Teddy bears wearing clothes with straw hats

    Via kraftykatscuriosityshop.com

    Teddy bears are very dignified creatures and deserved to be dressed in only the best Daisy Kingdom prints!

    8. Framed cross stitch in the bathroom

    These lace and embroidery delights were the perfect thing to look at while on the crapper!

    9. Needlepoint coasters

    Via etsy.com

    Smurf glasses just sweat better on these things.

    10. Hand-painted saw blade...

    Via etsy.com

    ...or landscape on an entire hand saw

    Via etsy.com

    Extra props if they had one of these! Paint at your own risk, right?

    11. Hand-painted ceramic figurines

    Via etsy.com

    I love their disinterest in each other.

    12. Crocheted air freshener

    Via etsy.com

    Because anything that diffuses odor should look good, of course! Bath and Body Works Wallflowers plugins have nothing on this beauty!

    13. Decorated Wicker Basket

    Via etsy.com

    It's purpose wasn't exactly clear.

    14. Something in the house featuring Holly Hobby

    Via etsy.com

    Holly Hobby could kick Laura Ingall's butt anyday.

    15. Crocheted bedding in the room you stayed in

    Via etsy.com

    Of course, the bedspread was folded up and put to the side, since it was really "all show".

    16. A handmade photo album with all the trimmings

    Via etsy.com

    Satin ribbon never looked so good.

    17. Crocheted fridge magnets

    Via etsy.com

    ...that hung up your artwork you made for her.

    This is a drawing I made for my Grandmother in 1987. I sure do love and miss her and all her crafty things!
