I get all wistful and nostalgic when it comes to my childhood memories. I love to keep everything… but not in a hoarding type of way. My parents were cleaning out their garage, and came across a couple boxes of mine; things I’d saved that meant something to me.
I took a trip down memory lane. (honey, i promise the dining room won’t look like this when you get home)
There were countless picture frames, letters from my high school besties and old boyfriends, things that my dad built me out of wood, birthday cards, etc. I did throw some things away, but much of it is just too memorable to part with! I think my future kids will enjoy wandering down memory lane with me someday.
I must have been one spoiled child to have TWO belt-packs. I know these are gonna come back in style someday. And when they do, I’ll be ready.
I also fell upon a little heart-shaped wooden jewelry box that my grandpa made. Inside were wonderful treasures from the 80’s.
I remember LOVING these earrings!
I’m SO wearing these to my husband’s company Christmas party. …make the other wives jealous. 🙂
Found my sweet Indian Head penny collection! Dating back to 1880! Maybe they’ll be worth something someday.
Here are my corsages from the 5 PROMS I ATTENDED. I loved prom. And boys loved me.
Ok… that last part not so much.
And I had completely forgotten that I owned this adorable tea set. I just love it. I shall pass it down to my future daughter (I hope). All the pieces are still there, and without cracks or chips!
Best of all… my Playground Kids. These dolls were MY Barbie. I loved them. They’re so colorful and flexible, with different hair colors/textures, removable clothing, and they each came with their own piece of playground equipment. Tell me one of you has heard of them. They were made by Ertl, and abruptly stopped production of these little cuties right in the middle of my childhood. I may be scarred forever. Have ANY of you heard of Playground Kids? This is a matter of great importance.
