Tuesday Photo-Childhood

This week's Wordsmith Studio Photo Prompt is Childhood. I decided to show you a couple of things that I have in my home that also were in my childhood home.
The first is a photograph of my maternal grandmother. My mother kept it on the buffet in the dining room. I keep it on a table in the living room. I didn't really know my grandmother, but I look like her. So much so that it gave me a start the first time I saw this picture.
The second piece is a lamp my mother had in the living room. I have it in my living room, too. I'm just giving you a taste of what it looks like. It has a yellow glass base, and I would say it is from the mid-1950's. I repainted the bottom area once and replaced the cord and socket. I'm trying to keep it going as long as I can.
What reminds you of childhood? Take a picture of it and post a link in the comments section on the Wordsmith Studio blog post. Thanks to Rebecca Barray for this prompt.
