This week, as a guest mom over at Design Mom, I’ll be posting about a few of my biggest loves: family heirlooms, histories, and keepsakes. Don’t worry, no scrapbooking or geneology required (just maybe a little rummaging, sewing, and reflecting). Hope you click on over and get a chance to read, share, and get inspired!

I just read your post on design mom about the heirloom popcorn bowl and I loved it. I was excited to read what you will be posting about this week because I just started posting on my own blog about family history basics and how anyone can do a few simple things to learn a lot about their family. I am a researcher myself but understand that research intimidates a lot of people.

My favorite family heirloom (that I currently care for) is a shadowbox containing 3 of my grandmother's ringlets. They are tied with a red, white and blue ribbon. My grandfather carried them in his pocket during WWII. I treasure them. Kinda weird to treasure hair, but I do.

Thanks again for your lovely post, I am looking forward to the rest of the week!

Hi, Carrie. I've enjoyed reading your posts on Design Mom. I love the vintage handkerchief wall hangings. Do you have instructions for that project? My grandmother recently gave me a big stack of her hankies, and I'd love to do something like that.

Hey everyone!

Thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you and hear your stories.

Katie B. Here are the short instructions for the hanky wall hangings: Purchase square canvases from online art supply. Use spray adhesive to stick hankies onto canvases. Try not to get spray glue on your hands in the process because it's next to impossible to get off. THen, hang 'em up!
