So true, Elaine. I have kept everything my MIL has made for my children as babies and toddlers, in my cedar chest. Just recently I have given a few oldie things to my kids for their new babies. DIL's are so happy to have them...that says a lot about them, in my opinion, I am blessed.
And my sister in law who is forever having garage sales, when I go to her sale, I usually rescue some handmade blankets, and sweaters, booties from her table,Made by our MIL. And some for sale for a quarter or at the most $1.00.
So sad, at least to me it is. But now I have them, and have even found some good babies for them as well.
