Heirlooms



Today is Marie's heirloom party! I have so many things that have been passed down and mean so much I didn't know what to include. I narrowed it down to some of my favorites. A lot of stuff that my dad gave me that really mean a lot are down in the cabin and it's raining, so maybe next time!

This grandfather clock belonged to my husbands mom and dad. His dad is no longer with us, so of course this has special meaning to him. I've often thought of painting it, but he doesn't seem to keen on the idea.


I love this little kitty tea pot. It's one of my favorites. It belonged to my grandmother on my dad's side.


This cute little bread bowl belonged to my Gran Gran, my mom's mother. I love how it says buns, biscuits and rolls.

Love this white picture from my grandmother.

And this old butter dish!

This green mirror was in a previous post. It was my father in laws. It's an Army issue mirror that he had hanging in the barracks.


Thanks Marie for hosting this. I love heirlooms!
