Before the twins were born my Dad and Clara brought an old wicker basket trunk to me during one of their visits. It was my "cheater" chest I called it when I was a kid growing up and I stashed away things I thought I'd need one day when I grew up and left home.
It sat over by the window in the twins' bedroom until about a week ago... when the kids discovered how to open it up! :P so I had to remove it from their room and push it to the guest bed room...
I had fun going thru it and walking down memory lane and here is just a few things I found in there... that I really don't have any idea WHAT to do with these things????
I remember wearing both of these T-shirts!!! They were my favorites! My cousin Matilda (Willis at the time was head coach of the lady Razorbacks in the 80's) and brought us Razorbacks shirts every summer when she came home to visit. I'm so happy to have kept this one.
And my daddy was a trucker and I was a Daddy's Girl.... what more do I need to say? :)
These spreads were made by my mom's mother - Grandmother Bonnie Cash. I never knew her but I'm her name sake.... I wish my mom had not put these into my "cheater chest" as I have NO CLUE as to what I am to do with them.
I know I had more badges than what is sewn onto the front of the coat...? Maybe they fell off or were misplaced before attaching onto the coat?? Who knows? But I think it's funny that my mom sewed my "wings" on crooked. *giggle*giggle* and if you click and make it larger you'll see she did not do a very good job sewing those little circle badges onto the coat... maybe it was one of those "Just get ER DONE!" moments! LOL
oh and a few more doiley or spread or what ever they are called... This one is a little larger than my hand.
I have no idea what to do with these. I don't want them and would love to pass them on to someone who collects them or would have a use for them... if you think you'd like to give them a home - leave me a note.
However these aprons - also my Grandmother Bonnie's have already been spoken for... but I wanted to take some photos of them first before sending to their new owner ;)
and personally I really liked the longer apron that had lots of large pockets.... however it did not come close to fitting me! Even now that I've had the reduction in the boob department :( I would have loved to have kept it..... but I know these are going to a good home.... to another Bonnie in NC :c)
Love from Texas!
