My mom was here the other day and we were looking at old photos and found some photos of furniture that belonged to my great grandparents. One of those pieces, a chair, I have in my house. It made me think about the "stuff" I have around my own house. My boys have no idea what might be a family piece vs something I picked up on the side of the road. Sure, nothing is an antique that would make them rich (that I know of!), but one day they may want to know if any of this "stuff" has special meaning or has been in our family for a period of time.
So, I made a Household Inventory portfolio that can hopefully answer their questions ...
I used a 7 Gypsies Portfolio that was part of a previous Mercantile Project Kit and covered it with Jenni Bowlin patterned cardstock from her Haven line. The keyhole is from Melissa Frances and I accented its design with a Malted Milk Paint Dabber.
Here's the inside of the portfolio opened up. Isn't the Haven line just perfect for this?
I created templates for photos and information about the pieces I'll include in the portfolio.
If you'd like to do something similar, click on the pdf below to get my template. In order to have it at the correct size for the 7gypsies portfolio, you must download the file and print from the downloaded file.
And now on to the confused amphibians around our house. Imagine my surprise upon opening our back door in the middle of November to see two of these stuck to our glass:
I think the little guys are confused with the warm weather we've been having the past couple of days!
Have a great day!
