Grandmother Carolyn of GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE the BEST of all titles to describe this wonderful woman! Carolyn is from Hendersonville and she think it's important to preserve time-honored traditions and heart-made treasures. Carolyn operates on the ABC premise (that there will Always Be Children) her items are sewn, knit, crocheted, and wood-worked in a manner that would make your own Grandparents (who taught us!) so very proud.
Carolyn is in her 70th year, she said she is blessed with good health and sound mind, and a core belief that anything is possible. There are children and grandchildren in her life that are awesome - beautiful, intelligent, full of unlimited potential and there is incredible joy in being able to observe them from a distance - watching them bloom on their own, so to speak, where they have been planted.
Carolyn creativity seems to spill over into all areas of her life - she love to cook and the idea of taking a little of this, a pinch of that and whatever is in the cupboard, and coming up with an outstanding meal plan is a happy challenge and accomplishment for her.
Carolyn said Grandmother’s House is a tribute to Grandmothers, Mothers and to all of our elders, really who have invested time and love by teaching their young daughters (and sons, too) the fine arts of hand-work and home-making.
Because so many of those crafts are now a dying art and that is why it is SO heart-warming to see, among the Zibbet family, people who are skilled in Tatting or Crocheting, Weaving, Knitting, or carrying on traditions of natural skin care or soap-making. Carolyn love that which is old and traditional and she is passionate about creating items that are affordable to struggling young parents - items that are quality-made, useful, practical.
Grandmother Carolyn’s bailiwick are those precious Infant to Pre-Teens that you love to pamper! And pamper you can, with items that are hand- and heart-made in the traditions of old. Many of their items are intended to be keepsake, and others are designed to be utterly fashionable and durable. Embroidery designs are whimsical-to-serious and copyrights/trademark rules are always respected.
Grandmother Natalie is a super-talented knitter who turns out hats to mittens to layette sets. Poppa Craft is our official wooden frame-maker for those delightful embroidered pictures, Grammy Carter oversees Quality Control, and Grandmother's House is the brainchild of Grandmother Carolyn.
Carolyn said; We've just added a section called KIDS, SHOP HERE! in response to requests for a place for little guys 'n gals to shop for Moms, Dads, Nannas, Poppas, Teachers, School-Crossing Guards, etc. Items to chose from are very affordable, small 'n sweet, and intended to be treasured by both the giver and the recipient. So, come on in, bring the little ones, let them browse and shop in the comfort of your own home - avoid the Mall frenzy!
The truth of the matter is that Carolyn is in the twilight of her life, and she said we are not really guaranteed anything beyond this one day, are we? She also said; “ I will be content to take each day as it comes, live it to the fullest, create treasures for Grandmother’s House for as long as I am physically able.” Carolyn said it will never make her rich, but her heart will be happy - and a happy heart is a wealthy heart! Carolyn have a good life….and now, she wonders what tomorrow will bring? Please visit GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE, we hope you'll find something you just CAN'T live without!
