This is my cousin, Susie. In some ways she is more like one of my sisters. When our grandmother was dying, she lived with us part of the time while her mom was being the great nurse that she is. I don't think any of us remember how long she actually stayed with us, but sometimes even brief periods of time in childhood can seem longer (in a good way) than they really are. Now that we are both grown-up we enjoy reading some of the same books, talking about the same kinds of things, looking for treasures at antique stores, etc.
One of Susie's latest adventures is moving into an apartment for the first time this year!! I am very excited for her to have a larger canvas on which to express herself! In honor of her new adventure, I am going to be posting some projects that I have either done or would like to do (someday....) that are particularly conducive to making an apartment a home (from a frugal and self-sufficient perspective of course)! So...Congrats Susie!! Love, Amy (David, and your favorite niece and nephew, Jessica and John)
