Homemade Treasures Made From The Heart!
I love being surrounded by treasures and memories from the past. I am blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful memories. This little corner of my home is located in my guest room.
This Sunbonnet Sue quilt was made by my great grandmother. I have had it ever since I can remember. I use to love to wrap up my dolls up in it! Some of the scraps in the quilt I recognize because they were the scraps leftover from my great grandmother's dresses. If I close my eyes I can still see her wearing one of those dresses over 40 years ago!
This deacon's bench was made by my late father-in-love. He made it for Mr. P and I when we were newly married. We had very little money at the time and furniture in our home was very scarce. He proudly made this as a gift to us and we have cherished it ever since. Since those early years we have accumulated many fine pieces of furniture but nothing as fine as this bench. Something made with love is absolutely invaluable. It will always hold a special place in our home.
This memorabilia box was made by my Mother for my grandparent's 50 anniversary. It contains many wonderful family heirlooms. I am proud to have it displayed in my home now!
