Bookshelves & Memories


During my little dusting party the other day I realized that these bookshelves hold many memories.

Like this little chair that Steve’s Great Grandfather whittled by hand.

Steve definitely gets his talents from his Grandfather.

Several old books that belonged to his Grandparents and Aunt.

Along with this old receipt from 1907.

And these four leaf clovers.

Love these!

I found these busts at a local antique shop here in Tennessee and was beyond happy.

I had an original set of them that had belonged to my Mother. 

When we moved back from Germany the movers broke them. 

I was able to repair the boy but the girl was beyond repair.

I discovered this old grain sack under the material I was removing from one of his Grandmother’s chairs.

It was in pretty bad shape but I managed to get two squares cut out of it.

And framed them.

Here is the chair today.

It needs a lot of work.

I hope I do her proud.

I love the pictures I took of this chair so much that I decided to use one of them as the background for our blog picture as you can see below.

Hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane.

Happy Tuesday!
