Today we took all our christmas decorations down…. Except for one thing I noticed a few minutes ago.. but that is gone by morning :-)
NOW.. all my chritsmas decor goes into this little old thing!
It’s not so pretty, BUT IT’S PRETTY VALUABLE to me… it used to belong to my great-great grandfather.
His name was Elias K. Jakobson K. and as you can see by the date of year 1861… this thing is pretty old..
BUT Take a look at this my friends
IT says 1809 right??
This thing is 200 years old!!! :-) wooow!
That means we’re going so far back that me and my husbands families are united.. YES that’s right!
We have discovered that waay back in our families we have the VERY same GREAT-great-Great-gREAT- grandfather haha!!! :-)
And his name was Mads Johannesson …. notice the MJ on the left upper side on that photo?? Yep.. this must’ve been his… BUT there is also an SK on the right side.. I will have to figure out why?? could it be his wife??
Anyway.. I love this old thing… and it’s VERY dear to me :-) And now it holds most of my christmas decor inside of it… so it’s not so very small actually!
Have a great day!!
