Now that I’ve begun reading Treasuring God in Our Traditions again, I am reminded of the many things that make our family special. Her first chapter is about family heirlooms–things of value that are handed down from one generation to another.
I have a handkerchief and a hand-made quilt from one of my great grandmothers, and a creamer pitcher from another. I am so thankful to have these few items from a past generation. I have to say though, that my most treasured heirlooms are from my daddy. I wanted to show you how he has filled up my house with beautiful things that my family and I will treasure forever.
First, my bedroom set that dad started when I was still living at home (including the bed that my dad lost a finger making…literally. You think I’ll ever forget what went into this heirloom? Not a chance!)
I didn’t want to stuff this post too full of words and pictures, so I figured I’d just carry this on into a new post later in the week. Officially To Be Continued….
