My Childhood Things

Wow, it has almost been a week since my last post! I have checked in every day but not enough minutes in the day to organize my thoughts! One of my 5 boys got sick on Friday night and then Saturday our fabulous day of love ended up with me lounging and resting to avoid getting ill myself! I caught up on a few movies I picked up from the library though and my darling husband made a breakfast that he knows I love! :) I also found a way to manage eating 2 of these fabulous cookies everytime the opportunity arose in the past week! :)


Now onto the childhood favorites...

Maybe it was that my body was starting to test the strength of my immune system (I used to long for my baby blankets when I started to get sick) or maybe it was simple nostalgia but I decided on Friday to pull out my old blankies that are off limits to the kids and show them. Yes, I am selfish with this set of things, they are my treasured-forever comforting-blankets from my childhood. If they were in better shape I might share, but one of them is so worn down and I just adore it!!! The Winnie the Pooh one has matching stripes on the back side and it has a cute hole from my puppy I got in high school and edges coming undone, but I still love it! My youngest son acted like it was a rare painting as he looked and said, "Whoa, this is old, don't touch it, right Mom?" Uhm yeah, moving on...

Here are a few of my favorite things:




It is amazing how this all fits in with the Sincerely Fro' Me to You timing, but I will be making another post in honor of that fun! :)

Did someone make your blankets for you? My husband has a few quilts that his grandma made him BY HAND, I don't know but I am so impressed by that. Our daughter has two quilts that her grandma, my husband's mom, made him that have help up pretty well. She uses them for tents and naps when she visits Grandma.
Hope everyone at your house feels better soon!

Sarah, Thanks for your nice comments, I will try and find the bunny print. You know what I'm talking about the ones with the old fashioned rabbits that look ols almost like they are in a english garden. A couple girls in blogland have had the prints. I to have my old blankies.. Have a great weekend.

LOL at your son's comment :)
It's nice to have something special from your childhood that is just yours. Thanks for sharing pics of your special blankets - I really liked the Winnie the Pooh one. I am thinking of making my son a Winnie the Pooh blanket for Christmas...now if only I can find material that looks like that!
PS - yikes, am I in the right section? This looks like "comments by Katie only" :)
