I was dusting this afternoon and was thinking of the things in my home that reminded me of the people in my life and those who are enjoying the glories of heaven.
I have many antiques in my home from relatives and lots of stories to tell but maybe as the year goes on and more dusting is done I will have to show more of them. I took this in the sepie mode on the camera for the full effect.
On the top shelf is the newest item in the middle - Tinkertoys.
I had these as a kid - my parents still have them in the basement. I just got these from Joel's aunt and uncle (aka the bread story).
Next row is my mom's old camera. I think when she was in high school. I'm not quite sure on that time frame.
The old radio was my Grandma's and it still works. It takes awhile to get started because the bulbs have to warm up.
The old clock also still works, chimes and all. We have to wind it once a week. This was Joel's great grandparents. I never knew them but did know their son Philip who was Joel's grandpa.
Our son is also named after him.
