Family Heirlooms

This is a memory for all of us - THIS is the clock radio that set on our parent’s kitchen table for twenty plus years – and it wasn’t until we found it in the garage clean-out last year that Mom shared that our dad gave it to her for Christmas the year before they were married. How cool is that? So now it’s over 50 years old and sets on our hoosier cabinet in our kitchen. A treasure, for sure. It still works – but is very crackly in this digital age… and I’ll admit that at first, it weirded me out to have it here – like it should still be setting where it was for years and years, but life goes on, doesn’t it?

My grandparents always had one sitting on the dining table , listened to it every morning for the news. And I had one as a teenager too, wish I had them both now!

I have 2 elf figures that were my paternal grandparents that I remember them being in their kitchen. Now, they are in MY kitchen.
