Guest book tradition

Growing up, my parents did a ton of entertaining and we often had guests at our house. I remember that we'd always pull out our guestbook after a meal or before they would leave so our visitors could sign it. As kids we loved to see what our friends would write. Now, years later we still look through our family guestbook and reminisce about visits and good times we shared. The book is full of memories, jokes, puns, riddles, etc! If you've never had a guestbook, it's something worth having in your home!

Just before Christmas I won a giveaway on Janell's blog, and chose this guestbook (and a little notebook) from the company Graphic Image

I am so impressed with the quality of these products. This book is their metallic leather (it comes in a few other colors too), it's soft and has a pretty sheen to it. 

They'll even personalize their products for you!

I'm excited to start using it, although with a house under construction, we're somewhat limited when it comes to entertaining!

Here's the notebook.

I'm always making lists, so it's fun to have this tiny notebook just for that! And, it's the perfect size to keep in my always-packed diaper bag!

What do you think about keeping a guestbook in your home? Too "old fashioned" or is it something you do already?
