This past weekend was absolutely wonderful. I went to go visit my parents and I must add that it is always a great time! My Mom and I went through every single box, every single plastic tote and weeded through goodies among goodies and I of course filled my totes up to the top. Uh yeah, there was no room for lids (lol). I mentioned to you in a previous post that my Mom was going to give me an old trunk that belonged to her parents and I received that this weekend. I love it and it holds so many wonderful things inside. I also received an old doll that belonged to my Grandpa’s Mom and I am told that it is probably well over 200 years old. Here is a picture of the doll. My great great grandmother (the original owner of the doll) made the dress. She was also the doll dress maker for Lazarus until the factory started making the dresses. Pretty neat – huh? Gotta love the detail that was put into her dress. She certainly was talented.
Here are a few other things that I found in the trunk. Precious keepsakes that I will treasure forever!! Do any of you know how to make a keepsake box for a flag? That is my Grandpa in the picture below.
This is my Grandma…. isn’t she beautiful?
This is a pretty neat story. Here are some very old marbles that belonged to my Grandpa. He actually won a marble championship competition back when he was 13 years old and these are the marbles that he won with. Pretty neat – huh? Like I said…… this trunk was full of lots of interesting and great memories!
Here are just a few old family photos that I thought I would post as well. Who doesn’t love stuff like this? I know that I love it!! Thanks Mom for allowing me to have all of these wonderful treasures. I will forever treasure them and take care of them.
This picture was of my aunt on the left and my Mom in the stroller. Wasn’t my Mom just the cutest baby?
This is a picture of my Grandpa (Jack), my Grandma (Clara), my aunt (Susie) and my Mom. Gotta love my Mom’s little belly shirt.
The last picture that I share with you all today is a picture of my grandparents. I believe that this was their engagement picture. Aren’t they a beautiful couple? A beautiful couple that created a beautiful daughter, mother and friend in my Mom. Thank you Lord for blessing me with such a wonderful family and sweet memories of my grandparents! Another neat thing that I am sharing with you today is that I found in some of the albums that today is actually the Wedding Anniversary for my grandparents. They were married on August 31, 1937. Pretty special.
I hope you enjoyed some of the wonderful treasures that I shared with you today. I know that I enjoyed them so I hope you did too. My next post which will probably be shared tomorrow will feature some prim goodies that I received from Mom. Oh ladies…. too bad you all don’t live close to my Mom. She will be selling alot of prim goodness and other items in her garage sale. Thanks for looking today.
Until Next Time……
