(it seems so very long ago)
after a visit to his folks house,
my hubby brought home a shoe box. It seems his mom was 'cleaning out' some
old family heirlooms and thought we might like to have them.
Like??? does she not know me
after all these years!
The best part,
besides her thinking of me,
was that she included a little note
on each item with regards to who it belonged to and where it came from.
Want to see?
this came from Goldie and Vincents home in Huntsville, Indiana
(not sure who they are exactly but this is from my Father-in-laws family)
this came from my Mother-in-laws grandparents farm on her dad's side.
the note says...
"dad's mom used to set Jello in this bowl out by the big water tank in the pump shed."
Obviously it was well used
and has been repaired many, many times.
here is another piece from the Indiana folk
passed on from
my husbands grandmother's grandparents!
there are a few more pieces and when I figure out which goes with what little piece of paper I will share them with you.
