Flash back Rednesday

So, when Raquel was 5 in 1998 and in Kindergarten, the class made hand prints with paint and at the time I didn't know what to do with them. I didn't want to discard them and I felt that if I tucked them away somewhere, in time, I would forget them. It seemed the universe moves in mysterious ways. Elizabeth, my MIL, gave me Eric's hand prints made from some sort of chalk outline from his Kindergarten class back in 1965...he was also 5 years old at the time too.

So I decided to laminate both of them and place them above my stove, on a little ledge against my red stove hood...and so that is my contribution for Rednesday...tons of more redness in the future.

BTW...apparently I didn't have hands or my teacher wasn't that creative...I'm just sayin'


  1. What great mementoes you have - love all the red too!

    Happy Rednesday!

    Lola & Nora:)
    btw Vacation Over? Great Memories to share?!

  2. That is a great idea. I 'll have to dig my kids out-I know they are somewhere-hmmm. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh, what great memories. And I love the read theme.

  4. That's right...didn't you go to that "Non-Creative" school? ;-) I know you have hands or else you are one great toe typist!

  5. How fun to have the two of them side by side! I haven't found any hand prints of mine either WAH!

    Happy Rednesday,

  6. What a great idea. Where you placed them is perfect. That way you can see good memories of another time while cooking.

  7. That is SOOOOOOOOO sweet!


  8. I'd love for you to pop over to take part in a giveaway I'm having!

  9. Isn't it neat they look like the same little hands. Don't feel bad...we didn't do that either. We made Shell blocks. Don't ask.

  10. Bun, I think we made plaster hands instead of the paint or chock traced hands. I had mine for some time but I think the fingers broke off. Jenifer and Karina made te plaster hands too. I also remember making an elephant from clay and we baked them. I had that elephant for the longest time but admit, it looked more like a creature. The trunk was...strange.

  11. Oh those sweet little hands don't stay little very long do they Bunny? Have a great weekend. Charlene


Go 'head...say it already!
