Buried Treasure

I was burrowing around in my storage room today and I unearthed some things that haven't seen the light of day for a long, long time.

My mom made this play rug for our toy cars when we were kids.


My mother is phenomenal. Check this out: she drew our house. (For those of you in Provo, this is on 820 North and 11-something East in Provo, Utah. The park she drew behind the house is Kiwanis Park, which was just down the street.)


And she drew the local service station-- you can tell we lived right by BYU!


This is where we went to church, on 7th North and 9th East.


My kids love this thing. I'm so glad I still have it!

I want to make one of these for my kids, so tell me how the edge is finished and stuff so I can make it to last for ever and ever.

That's so neat! My mom drew one of those, as well. It wasn't full of local landmarks, but we still loved playing with it. I wish it hadn't been lost when they moved from the ranch.

I should just hitch up my apron and make one, eh?

That would be 1163 East, 820 North, Provo. The house is still there and looks fairly similar though the shutters are black nowdays, I believe.
I LOVED that house. Sigh.

Oh, I am so glad it has survived! I'd forgotten about it. Have fun, my children!
