Dear Followers, I am embarking on a 31 day post-a-thon inspired by the Nester. So, for the next 31 days, I will be posting about my chosen topic, nostalgia. I hope you will join me!
Day 1: My Kindergarten Hand Plaque.
My plaque is made out of clay. My children's are made of plaster.
Who made a kindergarten hand plaque? Who still has their kindergarten hand plaque?
Who proudly displays their kindergarten hand plaque along
with their kids' plaques? I do. I love to decorate with my collections, family photos and past mementos.
That's Day One of 31 Days of Nostalgia at Organized Clutter!
