Sentimental Saturday

Emily and I spent our day with mom, helping her clean and organize her things in her apartment. Each box that we opened contained wonderful treasures that told stories of her past. In her closet...six shoe boxes full of vintage scarves. Most were in excellent condition. She kept her favorites in her dresser drawer, and sent several home with us. (Watch for some in my Etsy Shop) This one adds a touch of spring to her gray sweater, doesn't it?!
Emily, Mom, Ken and I went to the St.Olaf Church Rummage Sale. We had to make two trips to the car with all the goodies we found for Emily's apartment. We enjoyed lunch prepared by the church ladies...barbecues and homemade pie.
After lunch and back to work. I'd say one of the highlights was this bed jacket. My mom received it when she was in the hospital having a baby. It was from my dad's sister, Aunty Vivian. The note on the box read 1951. It is still in perfect condition. We had a good day...three generations together...sharing precious memories.

What a wonderful weekend. I'm so jealous. I have not even thought about bedjackets in years. I wish I still have the one my mom gave me when my first child was born. It was quilted, pink with lace. Perhaps I should dig deep into the cedar chest. I cannot imagine getting rid of it.
