It's Friday!


Happy Friday to you! We are in the downswing here, 4 days left of school/work! Yippee! Now if we could only get our nice weather back, we'll be all set.

I would like to share a little something today for Cindy's Show and Tell Friday over at My Romantic Home.

This is my grandmother's pitcher and bowl. As a child, I remember this always being on display in my parent's house. My mother told me years ago that I could have it. However, with my children being young and...um..."dangerous" around breakables, I thought it best to have this heirloom remain at her house for safekeeping.



Well now my children, at ages 12 and 8, are not really any less "dangerous" than they were as toddlers, but I decided it was time to bring this beauty home anyway.



Each piece is labeled on the bottom with Clementson Bro, England, Azalea. I have no idea how much they're worth, if anything at all. As far as I'm concerned, they're priceless based on sentimental value alone. You see, I never knew my grandmother. She passed away before I was born, so it's nice to have something that belonged to her even though I wasn't lucky enough to have known her. I cherish this piece and have placed it on my bedroom dresser. Hopefully, it will be a little safer there than in other areas of the house.

Pop on over to Cindy's and take a look at what all the others are sharing today.
Wishing you all have a very lovely weekend!

  1. What a beautiful piece! You were probably wise leaving it with your mum while your kids were little as it is definitely an heirloom worth preserving.

    Best wishes and happy weekend,

  13. Hi Gina,
    It is truly a beautiful heirloom. Oh, and I just read your post about your blue dresser...too cute. Love the color and it looks perfect in your sitting area. Your hubby is such a sweetie for going out and getting it for you :-) Hope you are doing well my friend. By the way, it's been a little difficult for me to post lately. Haven't been feeling like myself. I have a doctor's appt. soon to try to figure out what's up. Hopefully it's nothing...Thank you for being a sweet and caring friend. Have a wonderful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,
    ♥Ana
