My family knows how much I love all things vintage - especially if they have been in the family! So, here are the goodies I came home with from our recent trip to St. Louis:
These tin dishes belonged to my mom and her sisters when they were little - Emily has already had a ball playing with them. The cookie cutter is from a thrift store - but, this is our family traditional sugar cookie shape at Christmas! I am excited to now have two extras - one for Emily and one for Rachel when they are older!
My Grandma found two of these children's hot water bottles while I was there - this one was still in the Walgreens box! It says, "This little piggie went to market". I think Rachel will love it, because she gets little tummy aches and loves to lay on her tummy - the warmth should be very soothing for her!
Red and white enamelware bowl - from my sister! Old scrapbooks with unused pages, family photos, lace and doilies crocheted by my Great-Great-Grandmother Dale, and a picture frame that I have aspirations of spray painting and using in Emily's room.
My favorite family treasure is our bedroom furniture. It belonged to my Grandma's Great-Grandparents and it is believed that my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather built it!
So, tell me about your favorite family treasures!
