It's Show and Tell Time!

I have shown this shelf in my guest room before, but I didn't tell about the objects. So here's the scoop!
The two ruby vases on the end were my mom's. They must be from the 40's or 50's. I remember her using them when I was at home.
The hat is from the forty's. I wore it in a Christmas play at my church. The gloves were mine from Easter long, long ago. The little box a friend made for about 15 years ago. It is decopage with my birthdate highlighted. The aqua box standing on its side is a old glove box. Got at a garage sale and have no idea how old it might be.
The red dish I found at another garage sale. But I was drawn to it because it matched my mom's vases. The teapot for 1 is fairly new. I love the book because it describes me. I do love old things. The little camera and case were from my dad. I must have been about 7 when I received it. It takes itty bitty little rolls of film which I have never had. I am sure it probably works.
The sign is left from when my guests were here. My husband thought it was funny although he made breakfast every morning. The shawl was my grandma's. I remember her wearing it to church as we walked there! The purse I made for another play at Christmas. It was a victorian theme. And finally, the old hanger....had it for years. Honestly, don't know how I got it, but you don't see the all wood ones with print on it much anymore. Hope you enjoyed my show and tell. You can click on the Show and Tell box and see many more postings of beautiful and interesting things.

Such sweet things, each with its own story. Your red vase is the Depression Glass pattern Ruby and is from the 1940s. I have two just like it and use them at Christmas to hold low pine.

It's really love that almost all the items have some family history attached. I love the Ruby glass!

I really love your display. It's not just pretty. It is a trip through your history and your personality. That was fun. My mother had the ruby glass, too. I was away, living in Alaska when she died. There were many keepsakes like those I would have treasured, and I don't know what happened to them. I just remember them being part of home.
