101 More Uses For Your Family Crest

Just testing to see how much mileage I can get out of a blog topic. And so I bring you:

101 More Uses For Your Family Crest:

On a Pillow - or perhaps a tie!
Impress your friends with a piece of priceless artwork made from rare inlaid woods:

or just pop that baby in a frame and show friends that your family dates back to the 1700's. What's that? Their family only dates to the 1820's - *cough* LOSERS *cough*

Disclaimer: These items were made by very kind individuals. I'm not poking fun at them, just the fact that I am living in FAMILY TREE HELL!!!!!!

*If you have a couple minutes to read the in-law stories in the comment section of the previous post, you will NOT be disappointed! When it comes to entertaining stories, you guys really BRING IT!*

I like the crest being on a rug. You can cherish it or step on it depending on your mood.

wow, my dad is into our family history and all that, but he doesn't own that much stuff with the crest on it! :-) Actually, I think I've only seen 1 thing...I think the crest thing is kinda neat if it's not overdone...

Mommy, I'm Home said...

At least your family crest doesn't include mushrooms...

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Call me crazy (wouldn't be the first) but I'm thinking perhaps the crest isn't sitting well with you.

I'm observant like that you know.

Love that family pride! :)

I don't even know if we have a family crest. I'm more interested in finding out about the native american side of my family but no one is talking. It was a secret for so long...I guess old habits really do die hard...

I love family crests...I have one for Murphy. You know you are right about how old people looked way back when...my grandmother in that picture is only 43...she looks 70! Love your blog!

My dad is all about the family crest.

We have a family crest and what is that about? It's a worthless piece of crapola hanging on the wall. What are folks supposed to do, admire it? I'm with you. I'm finding some new things for that crest.

Herding Cats said...

I love these ideas actually! Haha, thanks for stopping by my blog by the way :)

Tracie said...

Those crazy Germans are so proud, aren't they? When we were at Epcot my husband was STRICTLY FORBIDDEN to go in the shop where they sell the family crest crap. I learned my lesson the last time we were there.

JoeyRes said...

I don't think our family has a crest, but I married it so how should I know?

I did hang a giant "R" in the bathroom. My parents like to make up R-words it might stand for.

I like the inlaid wood frame.

Kind of glad I don't have a family crest right now!!!
