Baby Quilt

When I was a baby my mother made me a quilt......she embroidered blocks and sewed them together, it was trimmed in satin. It was a beautiful quilt and I had it until my house burned down. This was the pattern.

Banana Seat Bike

My sister had one of these and when she got too big for it I got it. It was one of the best hand-me-downs I ever got.

I think I used this text book in elementary school. If I didn't, my brothers or sisters did.

Calendar Bank

We had a bank very similar to these but I think ours was green. I think we got it with our encyclopedia set. When you put in a coin it would change the date. Dad used to save the RCMP quarters in it.

Read Aloud Kindergarten Stories Book

I vaguely remember this book. I am not sure if we had it at home or if I saw it at school or the library.

Toy Iron

My sister and I both had toy irons similar to this. The plug was a suction cup you could stick on the wall. We had fun playing with them until our younger brother destroyed one of them. He put one on a baseboard heater and turned the heater up as far as it could go. The entire family went out for an hour or two and when we got home the iron had melted. Then my sister and I probably fought over whose iron he destroyed.

Mother & Dad Salt & Pepper Set

My older brother had this before I was born. He got it for Christmas one year and from the family stories I think it was one of his favourite toys.

Buckaroo Game

For the record, I did not have this game. I also did not have a Lite-Brite or Easy Bake Oven or a real Barbie doll or a mood ring or dozens of other cool toys all my friends seemed to have. But I'm not bitter. I remember playing this at a friend's house in Kettle Cove when we were on vacation one summer.

Glow in the Dark Praying Girl

I remember having one like this on my dresser, I guess I got it either from my aunt or from Sunday School. I think my sister had one like it and we also had praying hands that glowed in the dark. They didn't glow very brightly or for very long, but I remember holding it under the lamp for a long time then turning off the lights and it would glow a lot brighter then. It had a faint greenish tinge to it when it glowed.

Donkey Salt & Pepper Set

My aunt owned this set of salt and pepper shakers, a donkey carrying jugs on a cart.

Lip Gloss

This was very popular lip gloss among my friends when I was in high school. It was thick and sweet smelling and I believe I had it in bubblegum or strawberry flavour.

I remember seeing these at my aunt's house. A little box shaped like a loaf of bread filled with cards that had a bible verse printed on them. The individual verses were referred to as promises.
