Every Friday, Kelli hosts Show and Tell Friday. Head over to her blog to check out all the Show and Tell Friday participants!
Today I'm sharing two things that my Mom gave me on Monday. Both items belonged to her mother, my grandmother, Mammaw. She passed away in October 1987 from a heart attack at age 62. Just dropped over at church - it was a Wednesday evening - and she was carrying a baby, whom she held close to her. I guess she knew something was happening. The doctor said she was gone before she hit the floor.
Anyway, on to the items. The first is a pillow. My Mom isn't sure if Mammaw made this herself or perhaps her mother, my great-grandmother, Eva, did. I think it's cute! There are some stitches missing off the clock in the top left corner, but I'm still glad to have it. I have it sitting in the living room on a little chair that belonged to my Aunt Shirlie, who I called Aunt Lee since I couldn't say Shirlie when I was little. She also passed away - in 1994 - from ovarian cancer. She had cerebral palsy, but she never, ever complained. I miss both of them.
The second item is a big egg! Mom said "it's old" and it looks old. I took the plastic covering off after I took the pictures and have it stored in my china cupboard.
There is an Easter scene inside, but I couldn't get a good picture of it.
Happy Friday, everyone!
