Family Heirlooms

I love family heirlooms and I feel blessed that I have a few from our family.  I’m not one to pack family heirlooms away.  In fact I have just about all our family heirlooms displayed throughout our home.    


I have created a small tabletop vignette in the family room using some of our family heirlooms. 


I’ll share with you what’s on top;  two books that were written by two different family members about Charlie’s family’s heritage.  One was written in 1942 and the other was written in 1967.  A wooden box case with glasses in them and an old Rosary that belong to either my Mom or grandmother.  I found them in an envelope in my mom’s jewelry box.  I have no way of finding out now because my Mom has passed away.  I only wish I knew.   I had never seen something so beautiful! 


The wooden glass box case still has the prescription form in it.  They belonged to Charlie’s grandmother.  


An old dog figurine.  This cute little fella belonged to my dad.  


A tin box with a pipe in it that was Charlie’s grandfather’s and other little keepsakes. 


The top of the tin box says “Huyler’s Chocolate Lunch Rolls”. 



I love this little vignette.  You see, Charlie and I have lost both our parents and I just love having little things that belong to them scattered throughout our home.


As always, thanks for stopping by.  I do appreciate my followers and I always love your comments.

  12. Hi Gail,
    What a lovely and sweet vignette. Every piece is so interesting. I am like you, both my husband and I no long have our parents either, so I have family pieces and photos scattered throughout our home. It's just a tiny bit of them living with me and I need the reminder, it helps me to be grateful for each and every day that I am still breathing.
    Hugs and love, cindy
