I hang my kids "art" all over the house, and my bookcases are stuffed with the stuff my family before me passed down. I have a particularly large number of things because my brother (God bless him) always says, "Well, it should stay in the family..." knowing full well that I will cave and take it. I might get back at him by sending family "gifts" to my nephew so it can "stay in the family." Never to young for a guilt trip, never too old to get back at a sibling ;)
Anyway, I'd like to share my special heirlooms with you through a weekly blog segment I call "Fingertip Friday." Each week I'll post a new story behind one of my treasures that's literally at my fingertips. I'd love to hear what your favorite hand-me-downs are as well. Pictures welcome!
