  • My MIL kept a lot of my husband's things from when he was a baby and growing up, so we now have a lot of that stuff. I have a blanket from when I was a baby. Then we have some things that are even older that is from my husband's side of the family. We have a wooden rocking chair and matching non rocking chair in my daughter's room that my MIL remembers from her grandmother's house. And we have some silver and dishes that were passed down from his grandmother.

  • I have plenty of things from the 80's, a few from the 70's, even fewer from the 60's. The oldest things I have are some books that are from the early 1800's.
