I wasn't sure about doing a hybrid but somehow it seemed quite fitting for this labor of love. This house is my Grannie's home and she turns 89 in a couple of weeks. It's amazing that she is able to remain so independent even after we lost my grandfather 3 years ago. My Grannie's health is weakening and may not be able to stay in her home much longer. I wanted to capture some of the tangible details of the house as well as the less tangible. The writing font on the side is in my Grannie's words it reads " We moved into our home when Robbie was still a baby. I've lived here for over 55 years. I've thought about moving but there are so many memories in this old house..I can't imagine leaving. The typed journaling is my impressions and memories of this house that I have been visiting since I was little and even some snippets in my dd's words. Reads: To the average passerby this is just a little old house in the east end of Vancouver. For me this little old house is a symbol of family and traditions. This is the house that my Dad grew up in and it is the house that to me as a child, was so exciting to visit. This is the home of Christmas dinners and it is the place of many fond memories I have of my Grandparents. Now the great grandchildren visit and build their own memories. Just recently I went to visit my Grannie and Autumn commented on the pretty jewels on Great GrannieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s walls and I remembered my own fascination with the glass and stucco exterior. It made me look around with new eyes at a place that I often take for granted. My Grannie is almost 90 now and I worry about whether she will be able to continue all the upkeep here and eventually she may have to sell the old place. Many of these little old houses get torn down to make way for the modern Ã¢â‚¬Å“Vancouver specialsÃ¢â‚¬Â?. It makes me a little sad but I also feel lucky to have had the opportunity to spend these special moments with my family.
