Awesome Auntie Mail
My Aunt sent me a box full of fun and family history. The blanket was crocheted by my Great Aunt, the wooden spools are all from my own mother's sewing supplies (that were given to my Aunt, and now to me), and the other items are from my Aunt's friend and from an antique store. The doilies are already underneath my wooden candle stands. The blue embroidered placemats and napkins will be used for "date night" with Hubby, the pillow case will be used on our bed, and the blanket will definitely be used. I have a plan for the spools too, but want to put good use to the thread on each one too.
My family history project has begun as well. All the letters, stories, and photos will be organized over the next few years....more on that later.
