Here it is Thursday again, and I have just a few things to show, photos I took last week. Then hop on over to Suzanne's blog and you can check out all the Vintage Thingie offerings.
First is this cool looking vase. It was my Mum's, she got it as a 21st. birthday present in 1939 & I always adored it so I am thrilled to have it.
It used to live on a hall table with fresh flowers in it, whatever was in the garden that week, all year round, my Mum could always find something from her garden to enliven her home. Whenever I would visit home there would always be something fresh from the garden in a vase in my bedroom, it was something Mum always did. I wish that I had told her I noticed these little kindnesses & that they were so meaningful to me-but she knows now!
This dear little plate one of a set of four, belonged to my Grandma, Dad's mother, and each of us girls, my sisters & SIL received one from my Mum. She always loved & treasured them so I treasure mine. I am guessing they are circa early 1900's.
This little shoe has been around since my very early years-it always stood on my dressing table as a child, I would keep my little treasures in it and now as an adult it is in the china cupboard. It's probably 60 yrs. old & I think my aunt gave it to me.
Finally this tiny Wedgwood cup & saucer-the cup is no more than 2" tall. I found it at a church rummage sale when I was 14, I think I paid around the equivalent of 25 cents for it.
Quaint little things with so many memories attached-I wonder, will anyone care about them after me?
