My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Heirlooms

Blog prompt: What heirlooms do you have to pass down?

My most treasured heirloom is the Chinese china set that my parents gave me. They got this when they went to China right after they were married in 1946. It is a rose colored set and sits in my glass china cabinet. I won't let anyone eat off of them or really even touch them. I don't have a picture of the set right now but may do a scrapbook picture of them in the future.

We also have a grandfather clock given to us by my mother in law when she had to move in with my sister in law. This clock sat in their livingroom for many years. In fact, before we got married, I did a cross stitch picture of a grandfather clock to give them as a present. It sits in our dining room near the china cabinet.
