  1. Definitely i use both. Several tubs of keepsakes from when the children were little and a few of when i was little. I think my husbands little boy keepsakes are still at his parent’s house. Otherwise, it had better be in use or it’s gone!

      1. it is kind of neat that my daughter, when she was a wee tot wore some of the cute dresses i had as a wee tot. she even played with a couple of my old dolls – alas, they did not make it past her. Not that she was rough when them – far from it – it’s just that the fabric was deteriorated.

        1. isn’t that awesome? I have heard many other stories where the kids used their parents childhood stuff. To me it is so special, so lovely. I am glad you and your daughter got to experience this. And when the time comes, it is okay to let go, too 🙂

    1. how nice Rebecca 🙂 I have some stuff I do not like that much (for example, I would like to replace my bookcases, which were second hand and do a good job, but for years I have been wishing to get nice crafted ones. I will see when this be a possibility 🙂
