Gauardian Angel


Show & Tell Friday
see more at Kellishouse!

Meet my Mother's Mother
My sweet Granny

At the age of sixteen...sweet Edna.

Several years ago my Mother passed
Granny's first dishes down to me.
I display them with love,
some in my hutch and
some on the wall.
A little tribute to loved ones.

(The silver is from my hubby's side of the family)


And what a perfect match...place mats and napkins,
rose doily, and pink goblet
all collected here and there
from Thrift Stores.

Hope your Friday is perfect! ~Candy~

Candy, how absolutely sweet the place settings are. And the photos - such pretty ladies in your family....
Thank you for sharing the picture. This was under the one of your Granny?
Isn't it neat to find hidden treasures!

Re: the comments on my blog about bad hair days and using tacky glue...you're probably too young to remember "spit" curls! LOL! I can't remember what we used to hold them down in front of our ears - Dippity Do? LOL!
