Come join MommySweetMom for Things In My House Thursday and share the things in your house!!
When my grandmother was sixteen, in 1915, her parents gave her this desk. After she died, way too young at age 63, my grandpa used it for awhile and when I visited him in Indiana (after I was married) he gave it to me, and he said, "I want you to have Grammie's desk because I know you will take good care of it". I have had it for 35 years now and just love the way it looks in my living room. It holds many family mementos and they all make me smile when I see them!!
The glasses were my Mom's, they sit on a book that she gave me years ago; the framed photo is of my grandpa, at age 4, and his older sister, Ilo Mae; the letters tied in a pink ribbon were written by my great-grandmother to her children and other family members and behind the photo is a cloisonne stamp box that belonged to my great-aunt, Grammie's sister, Lois. The little metal elephant was Lois' too. Books on top of the desk belonged to various family members. Thanks for letting me share another "thing in my house" with you!
See you next Thursday!! Have a great week....
