Many of us will be traveling to our childhood homes over the holiday vacation. Aside from enjoying being with your family and familiarity of your home, take an opportunity to go through old mementos and uncover some childhood gems for your current home.
When I visited my own family over Thanksgiving, I uncovered these old silhouettes of my parents and older brother (i wasn't even born yet!). I made some copies and can now frame and add these family gems to my art gallery. A friend of ours was home in Chicago and went through some old boxes that had been in the garage. Aside from finding a Gerado tape cassette, magazine photos of Corey Haim and Kirk Cameron and other 80s items, she found a turquoise lock box. Since she is in the process of making over her office space, she now has a place to keep little office supplies and a bit of her 80s love in her current design.
How about you, Apartment Therapy? What childhood gems have you uncovered that now sits in your current home?
