instagram diaries: gran’s






I went to visit my gran the other day. Two things I love about my gran’s place: the garden and the bookshelves. These are just a few snaps I took on le trusty iPhone. Check out the date on the Art Journal. Ancient! The set of Charles Dickens novels used to belong to my great-grandma, which she received when she was a child. They’re about 100 years old too. The books are a history lesson in themselves. The garden is overgrown and full of nooks and crannies. Just the way I like it.

    Film is amazing, but Instagram is equally as good!
    If only I actually had an iPhone though, haha.

    These instagram pictures are a feast for the eyes ! Your gran's garden looks amazing, so does the old books collection !
    I like grandparents’ homes because there is always a nostalgic and whimsical feel in them…

    @Abby: instagram is like a more attractive version of twitter lol

    @Janelle: hahaha I was thinking about calling this the 'instagran diaries'.

    @danica: unfortunately my gran will be heading into a home soon too. Will miss hanging here for sure.

    @alyssa: it's so much more convenient isn't it? I wish I had held out a few more months and got the 4S though – 8 megapixels!
