The living room was FULL of china and cut glassware (if I still had a basement, this ALL would have gone home with me)
This was the Christmas room (it became very clear in a matter of minutes where my extensive love of Christmas decorations came from! Ha!)
Nana did always tell me I could have a few things and one of those was her large collection of Pfaltzgraff Heritage dishes. I LOVE them and I think they look FABULOUS in my cabinet!
I did manage to take a few other things. The two that have several memories to me were these two small things:
This turkey held cranberry sauce every single Thanksgiving of my life. How could I have Thanksgiving without him???
I also have a few things that she made when she was in her pottery phase in the early 1980s. She made a gorgeous stone/stained glass church to display at Christmas, an egg plate, and a jack o lantern that I always loved as a Child. The most coveted thing I have from her house is this special Christmas decoration that I had to fight to save when she wanted to get rid of it when I was high school. She sat on Nana's Christmas tree for about 40 years! Love her!!! She made me want to put my tree up now! Ha!
