I decided to do a little dusting today and I thought I would share some of my treasures. I did show you the top of the cabinet where I placed Vickie's gift to me and now I thought I'd show you what was in the cabinet.
What this is is a 3 shelf unit that has glass doors that come down and close off the shelf. Each shelving unit is separate from the others and they can be moved around. Also you can add more shelves but we've never been able to find any. I really wish we could because there's alot more items I'd like to add.
The spoon on the left was hand carved by my DH for me. As you can see, I like to put my little pillows in here to keep them dust free.
The rocking chair in the middle was made by my father for a doll of Jenn's.
Those little brown shoes were my Father's baby shoes. I have a picture in which he's wearing them. The case to the left has my great-grandmother's glasses in it. And of course the beautiful picture of my dear grandmother Anna Grace behind her baby son's shoes.
More pillows. The tiny picture on the right is my grandmother in her old age. Still beautiful.
My Mother loved music boxes and I made several of them for her over the years. The small gold box on the left is one of them. It has a picture of a bright red cardinal - her favorite bird - on the lid.
My Father made me those Amish dolls about 40 years ago and the box in front of them is another one of the music boxes I made my Mother. The gloves to the right were my Mother's.
This is a table made out of cherry wood made by my Father for me. He made two of these and my oldest brother has the original that was my maternal grandmother's. My Father was great when it came to wood working. I have several things in my home that he made.
Just thought I'd take you on a little tour of my treasures.
I found something to work on. It's a Hand's on Design project called "Stitch Every Day". Here's what it will look like (hopefully).
The only difference is that I'm doing mine on a primitive green fabric.. I am going to make it into the stand up drum pincushion. I have the lolly pin they show and I'm anxious to start it. I knew I'd find something back there in what my husband calls "the black hole". Men just don't appreciate how us women look at stitching items.....treasures!
Have a Blessed Week, Barbara
