Mantel Piece

I can’t wait to tell you about our WALK day this weekend…I am composing a post and will send it out soon.  But in the meantime, enjoy this little “mantel” piece.  These three little “pumpkins” sit on my mantel every October.  They were made by my oldest child when she was in preschool many years ago.  They are made of fabric, stuffed, with a cinnamon stick for the stem and a green piece of fabric tied around to secure the top and also be leaves.  I’ve always loved all those things our children made and brought home from school.  They bring back such sweet memories pulling them out every year.  This will happen again when we pull out the Christmas boxes.  It won’t be long.

I can’t believe how the time flies by.

    The memories our children give us! Just today I was admiring a magnet my son made for me over 30 years ago. It’s green construction paper with a circle of dingy pennies on it. I remember how he polished each penny not knowing they would lose that shine and then he attached two very large magnets to the back. In the middle of the penny ring he wrote “I love you Mommy”. It was a special gift because he made it, he gave up his own pennies and the magnets were from his own “collection”. Aren’t children wonderful. So is your painting!

    How lovely! Your post made me think about the little momentos that I have from my children’s childhood. I think your post will have done this for lots of people and so prompted happy moments!
