Heritage Wall for Silver Sunday

Family

Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal is hosting Silver Sunday.
Today I am sharing my family heritage wall,
honoring our parents and grandparents.


I think this key was my grandmothers.


                                   



The little New Testament Bible used to belong to my husband's grandfather.


Not silver, but treasures just the same.
The kitty salt shaker and little note mailbox were my grandmothers.
I remember writing little love notes 
and placing them inside!
There is still one in there today!



The pictures in the teapot frame are of me, my mom and her mom at about the same age.

Happy Silver Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by!

                              Warmly,
                                      Lori

What a wonderful tribute to your family. With so many mementos it truly is a wall of honor.

Now that is wonderful! I absolutely love your pictures with the key, glasses, and New Testament around them. I also love silver with that dusty pink color on your wall. That is a favorite color combination of mine.

You have a wonderful wall. I have some family memorabilia on a downstairs wall, but it is not as well done as yours.
Stop by Applejack Lane if you can.
