Treasures From Grandfathers

I love photographing special treasures that mean something personally. The pocket watch belonged to my husband's Grandpa Lawrence. The slate board belonged to my Grandpa Proctor whom I never met. He used it as a schoolboy and his name is carved on the other side.
The vintage math book and key were among my mother's collection. She loved collecting 'old-timey' things. Since I was the only one in the family that expressed a keen interest in old things she would occasionally pass them my way when she was thinning out her cupboards. My favorite treasure she picked up at a garage sale was a vintage crib quilt that was hand pieced and quilted. She paid a dollar for it.
