FFF - Thanksgiving (no snot)

Ok, so every year it gets bigger, more fun and a lot more family.. but this year, I wanted to take a real look around and see what makes home, homey...
My mother made this, the year I was born, or when I was one, I bet it took that long..


This phone has been around longer than I have, there have been plans to make it into a real working phone, and a million other things.. it never got it's day in the sun as anything other than a really cool old phone.

This is a crazy vase.. CRAZY, it's always been around, remind anyone of that movie.. with the lamp.. you know the one
Another thing my mother made, always hung in the house. Hours upon hours of work to make this thing.. if I would have done this, it would be a stick and half blue,,, in a box, in the basement, of someones house that bought it from my garage sale because I would have been tired of looking at it, lurking at me..
but she did it, and it's so pretty


Speaking of pretty, look at the best part of thanksgiving this year!!!

Stop by Carries for more holiday fun!

This is such a great idea! One of my favorite things to do during holidays is wander around my grandparent's house and look at all the things I've loved since I was a child. I think I'll document this too so I can always remember. Thanks so much for this great idea!
