The hydrangea are hanging heavy on their limbs. Time to bring some in to dry and keep some color in the room for the winter. I thought I would show a few of my pitchers this week along with my featured teacup. You can see I also have quite a collection of very old doilies. The doilies and pitchers, other than the large one holding the hydrangea, are from hubby's grandmother's house. 5 generations of the West's were born and lived their whole lives there. So many treasures. I wish they each would tell their story.
Here shows a portion of the old silver. This napkin ring has an elegant W for the West name. These collections sit upon a 1930's bureau. My hubby's grandparents wedding gift to each other.
This is my second teacup Tues. I have Martha to thank for inspiring me to go through the collections I have put away for safe keeping.
I have displayed this pretty teacup from Japan in my living room with the hydrangeas and my father's pocketwatch. I found the watch yesterday...I will treasure it always.
Sharing another Golden Rule I'm trying to instill on my children:
"Eat what has been given to you because you are truly blessed."
