Show and Tell Friday

It's time once again for Show & Tell Friday, hosted by Kelli.
This week, I'm sharing the baby blanket (well, it's more like a sheet) that my mom made shortly after I was born. So it's 40+ years old! I have it in my hope chest when I'm not taking pictures of it! LOL



Here are three close-up pictures of the cute little animals:





I'm so glad to have this! Maybe I'll start sleeping with it! LOL

It has a few stains on the edges, but that makes it antique-y looking! Otherwise, it's in great condition. If I had a daughter or a niece, I'd pass it on; since I don't, I'm keeping it!
