Crazy Memento Quilt Block #4

Today I have block #4 of my Crazy Memento Quilt:

The little snowman was found in a box of things that belonged to Scott's grandmother.  She was so sweet!  And unfortunately, other than a few things that she made for me, I didn't have anything else from her that I could use on this quilt. 

After embellishing this block, I had to glue the snowman on using E6000 jewelry glue.

The little deer is a pin that I found at a flea market a few years back.  He's on a little spring so he moves around a little bit!  Too cute!  I think I only paid $1.00 for it.

The two trees at the top are from a beaded Christmas sweater that I found at a flea market for $5.00.  I bought it mostly for the beads but decided to keep a few of the trees to use.  I spent hours and hours taking the beads and sequins off of that sweater!

Here's a photo of Grandma and Grandpa Kellogg:

This photo was taken in 1934.  Grandma Kellogg was a tiny little lady.  And Scott's grandfather looks like a gangster in this photo, doesn't he?  Sign of the times!  LOL!!!

Very festive block. I like the snowflakes. Great pic. I love old photos. I always look through them at the antique stores.

Perfect use for those beaded trees - such a pretty block Pam. Nice to see family heirloom photo too.

Is he the Kellogg of breakfast cereal fame?
