I tend to love tradition, memory making, family heirlooms, and the stories that go with them..
Do you? I would love for you to share your special memories, heirlooms, or traditions.
My hope chest is slowly filling with items that have been close to my heart from childhood, friendships, marriage, motherhood, and more.
I have decided that on my birthday this year, I am going to sit my children around my Hope Chest, and share all of the stories that have been a special part of my past, our present, and their future.
I was recently thinking that I should hand-write a note, story, and any special information to these things, so that one day, ( when my mind is nnot working properly,) .. the stories will not be forgotten.
Here is a picture of my grandmother's buttons. She saved them off of shirts, and all types of clothing from her family, and perhaps even from her mother as well.
They were collecting dust in my attic, and so, I found this pretty jar at my favorite local Mercantile, and decided to share their beauty within our home.
Will you share your heirlooms, ideas, and memories with all of us?
