31 Days to a Heartfelt Home, Day 2, Sentimental Sunday #39 Dime Toss Dish





Welcome to Sentimental Sunday, my favorite day of the week. The day we all gather together and share what we are sentimental about. It can be anything from an item in your home passed down by a special someone or just a few sweet words about something that has touched your heart this week, the goal is to take a moment and reflect.








This week I am sentimental about that cute little glass dish, yeah the one in the middle there.  It is not an expensive piece but one that has great value to me.  My sweet little Grandmother (my Dad's Mom) won it when she was a kid.  She was at the carnival and played the dime toss game.  She threw her dime and it landed in this cute dish.  She kept it in her hope chest until she met and married my Grandfather and she has used  for all the years since.  Recently she gave it to me and I am so honored to have it to use and to tell the story behind it.  It is important to know the stories of our past and to pass them on to the next generations.

So what are you sentimental about this week?
