Show and Tell Friday




Show and Tell

My paternal grandmother was quite a saver of things. I have in my possession an autograph book that belonged to her mother and I took names, dates, etc. from that book to make the sampler above. I tried to make it look older by staining it, etc. The picture above is of my grandmother's high school graduating class. She is the last girl on the top row. I treasure this picture. Don't you wonder about the things you hold on to and whether those things will be special to someone on down the road. I'm quite a saver so the choices will be many


At http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ you'll find a list of participants in Show and Tell Friday. You'll see lots of different items and stories shared by others. Join in.

You have posted two items today that I would consider priceless treasures. I try to make sure my grandchildren know the stories that go with my "stuff" so hopefully they will treasure something of mine after I'm in heaven. I can't help it if I would like to be remembered. Bless your for cherishing your grandmother.
