The family home

What are some common things in your home that would also have been seen in the home of your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents?

What are some things in your home that tie you to your specific past? Do you have a religious emblem — like a doorway mezuzah — that someone handed down to you? A pineapple door-knocker, which is an old symbol of welcome? Perhaps a decorative milk-pail that a great-grandparent actually used for milking cows?

This week's theme is the state of your home.
