When I attended a vacation bible school at the age of 11, I painted this chalkware Holland Boy.  I remember giving this to my grandmother.  As I have said numerous times she kept EVERYTHING.   Years later she gave it back to me.  I know the art leaves much to be desired but I cherish the fact that she wrote on the back.

I have this hanging in my crafts room.

Please remember to date all those treasures your children and grandchildren give you.  It  will really mean so much in the years to come.

Dates are so very important, but I failed to do that on things I should. Thank goodness my mother did some and I treasure those things. Someone day this will hold a special meaning to your children.

What a sweet treasure your grandmother kept, and you are so right, the date really means a lot! Thanks for the great reminder on preserving memories! Happy VTT!

That is for sure Ann to date everything. I have lots of things from my kids and some of them are dated and some not. You did a pretty good job gal.

Yes, dates are vital. and if you have more than one child --so are the names of who did what!
I have some early "masterpieces" from my girls, and while I can probably date the age of the artist ... I can't say for sure which little dumpling it was. Bad Mommy, that's me.

I love your grandma's writing on the back; she must have been very proud of you!

It's nice that your grandmother saved it for so long.
