Today’s blog theme is ‘heirloom’. It’s been a busy day so I’ll keep it short and sweet.

My Treasures

Mam’s vase that goes with the wash stand.

This is a water pitcher that goes with a wash stand and basin. The wash stand has a mirror and two candles- one at each side of the mirror. One of the candle/stand sets needs to be repaired. I’m not sure how I was so fortunate to end up with the set but I love it. Yellow is my favorite color. I think of Mam every time I look at it. I wish I had a photo of it when it was sitting in her house.

Granny’s plate.

This is a small plate that Granny had on a wall shelf in her bathroom. My bathroom was done in purples and flowers like Granny’s so when Granny passed away I asked for this trinket. (I doubt anyone has a photo of it in her house but if you do, I’d love to have it.) I keep the plate in a curio cabinet that belonged to Bart’s grandmother- Esther WOLF. Behind the plate you’ll see a set of brown glasses. Derek died on a “homemade Christmas” year. My mother had finished this set of glasses for him early in the day on the day Derek passed away. She gave them to me to keep. On the other side you’ll see a cup that my kids made for me one year for Christmas. In front of the homemade cup is a glass coaster that my great uncle and aunt- Carl and Barb LARKIN- brought back to me from Germany. On top of that coaster is a Christmas ornament one of my kids made for Bart and I when they were little.

I love all these treasures. I would love to see pictures of the heirlooms you have and cherish.

Until next time,
