2016 in a Jar

Do you remember my 
Memory Jar?
It is quite full now and since 2016 has come to an end, 
it will find a special place on a pretty shelf, to be displayed for eternity. 

I emptied everything out and enjoyed looking at all our 2016 mementos.  

One thing I found that I enjoyed seeing again were the keys to our locks from Niagara Falls.
If you missed that entry, you can read about our "Love Locks" here.

I also enjoyed seeing this Scattergories Game sheet from August,
with Michaels handwriting.
If you have never played you must, it is such a fun game!!

I am on the lookout for a new pretty jar for holding our 2017 memories!



  1. OH, this was a wonderful idea and 2017 is going to deserve a very pretty jar indeed. I love this idea. Hug B

  12. I rarely keep things like that anymore. I usually end up tossing them out.

  13. I so love this idea, I may have to start one for 2017!

  14. I really love your memory jars and think it is such an awesome idea. I enjoyed your love lock post and have enjoyed so many of your posted memories.
    Blessings and hugs for you two~

  16. I think this is such a wonderful idea, Debbie!
    And I love that you keep them on a shelf instead of putting them away somewhere.
