Things in my House Thursday XVIII

So...if you follow my blog, you know that we have been at my 88 year old mother's place, to help her with health issues and with her many possessions. In her closet we found several boxes...but this one was special...and we opened it to find beautiful silk fabrics...

She casually says, "Oh, these

are my honeymoon nightgowns."

Our daughter, Emily and I are looking at each other... like we can't believe it...this is

lovely lingerie... from 1946. These nighties are beautiful...elegant. They have been in a box for
over 60 years.

Well.....now... they are here at my house, safely stored
away. Two nightgowns...two granddaughters...precious keepsakes.

Oh my! Those are gorgeous! I am not leaving my kids anything like that...I decided that I am using everything to its full potential...no more keeping china in the hutch or saving things for "special" cuz that time will never come.- BUT it is very cool that your girls have some vintage cool things...but remind them to use them!!

Those are beautiful!How special it is that you are getting pieces of your mom's past to share with your daughters. I feel terrible...I don't save anything. I think I need to start so that Kayleigh has some neat things to cherish and remember
