A silver punch bowl full of old letters and photos.
The punch bowl sitting on my father-in-law's Washington & Lee chair.
That's a 48 star flag in a box containing an old metal doll house. (I have to put it together!)
I've nicknamed this guy "Ebenezer" because we don't know who he is (yet!).
A great old wood crate and another family bible.
A great old table with bowl and pitcher. We put a plant in the bowl.
This rocking chair was in what was called "the best living room", which we only gathered in on Christmas to open presents. I always thought it was stiff and uncomfortable, but now it's in our family room and I'm starting to like it a lot.

I want to wish all readers of Madelines Memories a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. When it's all over, I'll be back on a regular basis. I'm planning to start 2011 with one of Madeline's diaries. They may have to have a blog of their own.
