My dining room and entry look like one just blasted through here!
I can't believe I'm showing you this. But . . . I had to, to set the stage for what happened next!
You see, I was in a "mood". Mark and Justin left this morning early for the last trip of the year to Glamis.
And I opened all the tubs to get out my spring and Easter decor.
Now I had mentioned to hubby when he took them down last night "where is the spring tub?"
His reply? "That's all there is Karen . . . there is so much #@*#@! up there you're lucky I could find that!"
Well, needless to say there is a box missing. So who gets to go up into the rafters? ME! BIG FROWN!
Up I go and nope - didn't find a box labeled spring. But guess what I did find!!!!!
This! My Grandma's old suitcase!
Remember when everything was engraved?
LOVE these pockets. Why don't they put those in suitcases any more?
Oh goodie! Fabric!
Looks like maybe something one of the granddaughters did to practice her stitches.
This was underneath! I love, love, love old cards!
But inside, instead of cards I found . . . these!
Can you say "HOLY COW!"
These two little pairs of booties are over 150 years old!
They belonged to my great grandfather,
made for him by my great, great grandmother!
Can you imagine making these? Look at the TINY laces.
And the teeny little bows . . .
All made by a Mother . . . anxious for her baby to get here.
Cool huh? I thought so .
But I STILL haven't found my box of Spring things! It has just evaporated . . . I'll probably find it when we drag out all the Christmas next year . . . UGH!
Anyway - had to share! Have a good weekend everyone! Can you guess what I'll be doing? :)
