Two Pitchers, A Lamp, and A Chair
When I took my Christmas decorations down and did some good cleaning I thought of some of the things that are truly special to me, as I was cleaning and tweaking. I have come to the realization, it is the simple things I cherish the most. That is where the title comes in. I was an only child, and on one side an only grandchild, as my mother too was an only child. I have been blessed to have a lot of family treasures. My children and grandchildren have now become the caretakers of a lot of items, however I still have a lot of things, some which wouldn't be worth much monetarily. That's okay. Today I thought I would share a few items that are precious to me.
Now the chair. A plain simple little chair, built over one hundred years ago, by my great, great grandfather for his wife.
Another thing that was given to me by another great aunt was this little flat iron, that had belonged to the same great grandmother. It and the chair had been in the same house because they had been painted every time the kitchen had been. This little iron had been used as a door stop.
I hope you have enjoyed the visit and sharing a few of the items I cherish. I am sure each of you have things you love that brings memories rolling into your mind when you see or touch them. That is good.
Okay last blog. I posted a terrible picture of my granddaughter Beth and her husband. The time before I posted one of Curt. So by reposting good pictures maybe I am out of the DOGHOUSE!!!!!
This is Beth and Ryan. They live in Il and don't get to come home as often as we'd like.
Thanks for visiting today and letting me share some of my favorite things. Please continue to come visit Through My Back Door where life is good.
