You Capture. Color

I am thrilled to join in on the You Capture this week to Capture Color! Beth at Folding Laundry is so inspiring. Go on over there and check out all of the beautiful Colors. To think, I have the perfect color subjects in my own house, right under my nose. These are some of my favorite that I captured with my little Nikon Coolpix S210 pink friend. This Quilt Block holds so much meaning to me. My Grandma Riddle quilted all of her life and would make sure each of her children and grandchildren had a special quilt she made. After she passed away, my cousin Vicky found hundred's of quilt pieces in our grandma's home. She had the brilliant idea to make a Quilt Block from the pieces and give to certain family members. I was blessed to have gotten one. Vicky inherited my grandma's talent of sewing and has a special sewing machine to create such a masterpiece. When I was looking to Capture Color, this was the first thing I saw to be the perfect picture. Thanks Grandma for Coloring my world. You are not forgotten! This is my favorite Jacket. I love to wear it because it shouts color. My family has laughed at me in the past when I wore this. I am a women who appreciates wearing lots of color!
This oil painting holds a special meaning to me. It hangs above my piano. It belonged to my mother-in-law who passed away. I love the delicate pink and softness, which reminds me of her. She was a "rose" without the thorns. Gee, I miss her.
A simple vase of flowers in my living room. I hope you Capture Color today.

Now that is a sweet story. How wonderful to have a little piece of history and a little touch from your grandmother.
There are beautiful memories here along with the color. :)
