52 Ancestors Challenge 2015: Week 24 Recap

This week’s recap is another thin one. I appreciate your understanding as my schedule has been a bit…  different…  than it usually is.

The optional weekly themes for July will be posted next week. Keep an eye out for those!

    I really enjoyed the posts I’ve read so far this week on heirlooms. I have other heirlooms which need to be catalogued and written about but the one I featured this week is full of history. So much more than I realized. I had to break my post up into two parts, first the heirloom and second the family.

    I have so many heirlooms that I didn’t know where to start. So I didn’t. I provided links to previous articles about some heirlooms and then told the story of a hard working farmer who was done in by a cherry tree.

    For good measure, my food post this week uses a family heirloom. Can anyone give me more information on this glass bowl?

    I’m looking forward to browsing through other people’s heirloom collections.
