pictures of my grandparents house....

I never took any pics of what it looks like on the outside but i got a bunch of what it looks like on the inside. I Grew up in this house. Lived there my first 18 yrs.
Bedroom Eric and I stay in when we go up.(was my bedroom from age 9 till i moved out)



My grandparents bedroom


My mothers bedroom


The hallway to all the bedrooms and the bathroom(didn't take pics of bathroom, its the least cluttered room in the house)

(you can see the bathroom door in this pic, its the open door)
The dinning room




The living room






One of the door ways

Entry way/laundry room

The kitchen





That house wasn't that cluttered until i was around 9 yrs old. You used to be able to sit at the dinning room table and eat. The dinning room table was used for thanksgiving day and birthday partys and such. There is a TV in the kitchen, living room, my moms room, my grandparents room, and the room i stay in.

Haha, the stickers on the headboard is priceless. I think every kid probably did that when they were little.

I like the pillow case on the pillow leaning against the closet in your grandparents room. My little sister has the same one!

Looks like a very cozy house! The abundant clutters of stuff is a little too much for my likeing but none the less, thanks for the pics, I love looking at other's people's houses.

It seems as if, for whatever reason, things got to be too much for your grandmother to handle. It must break her heart to see what has happened to her lovely home--even if she was responsible for allowing it to get cluttered. I don't know, of course. It would be lovely if the family pitched in and put in back the way it was, even if they had to hire some help. I think she would be overjoyed.

Of course you don't want to throw away anything she would consider important, but one room could be designated as the room for items not being used right now, and you could show her where to find what. A couple of closets could be fitted with organizers, shelves, etc., and many things could be stored there. I can't think of a nicer thing you could do. I think grandmother would weep for joy.

I think it is probably overwhelming! It would be, to only one person. Perhaps you could contact your mother and other relatives and tell Grandmother you want to do it for her as a gift, that she deserves help. She's probably getting older, but even a twenty year old would be overwhelmed. It's too much for one person, especially a senior citizen. I'm sure you'd be happy to see the house the way you remember it.

I grew up in guilford maine.(thats southern piscataquis county)

Well My gram gets irritated if someone tries to clean up something to make a little space. You should see the refridgorator(sp?) it has left overs and 2-3 of the same condiment open in it. wow its just horrible. I am going to try and keep myself from becoming a pack rat. She buys something and then puts it away forgets she has it and then buys another one.

My grandparents are in their 80's. My mom is in her 40's and I'm just 21 lol.

Ah the ole gal just doesn't have it in her. At 80 I don't blame her, I'm tired of it too.

oh my!

80 is not THAT old! People who get things that cluttered usually have more of a mental problem with it, versus just having things get out of hand don't they? Esp when you said she has mutliple jars of the same thing opened in the frig....?
