One of my blogging friends Deborah has a fun post about Girl Scout patches which reminded me of Boy Scout patches-being the mother of four sons who were all active in scouting, I sewed on lots of patches. (Photo above of my three older scouting sons l-r Brook, Daniel and Frank holding my youngest son Jeff is his homemade scout uniform made by me. Three of my four sons became Eagle Scouts.) My husband has all his boy scout patches and I have my Dad's that he earned while being a leader in an Air Scout troop for the year before his death.
Pins-I have quite a collection of DUP-Daughters of Utah Pioneers pins-some for awards, others just for fun. I've been a member of this organization that honors Utah Pioneers who came here between the years 1847-1869 before the transcontinental railroad was finished. I've also served as a Captain or leader for 5 years and started a new camp in New Harmony. It's a fun group of women that met monthly for history lessons and to share their heritage. I also have a collection of Native American baskets, rugs, pottery, etc.
Tell us about your collections.
