Letter T--------TREASURES

Good morning. Oh yes the coffee is ready and I am happy to see you. It is a bit chilly so we will just visit inside this morning. If you come back this afternoon we can sit on the porch.
Let me clarify the title today. I KNOW what the real treasures are. They are not things. Definitely not. But today I am sharing, and I have done it before some THINGS that are treasures to me. Not valuable to anyone else but me.

The mirror that hung in my paternal Grandparents home. Always
My Maternal Great Aunts lamp.
Curtis' great grandmothers willow egg basket
My paternal Grandmother's sun bonnet
My cowbell my daddy gave me. He came in wearing it around his neck, "clanging"
An old cracked yellow ware bowl given to me by a stranger at a yard sale. The story behind this renews your faith in people.
The coffee grinder given to me by Ed and Ila many, many years ago.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing a few of my treasures. You are a treasure too when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.

  6. That is so neat that you have so many things from your family. I only have my Grandpa's set of drawers but I sure do treasure them!
    Be blessed,

  7. I love these old artifacts. What a great glimpse into history. My husband still has a few things of his grandparents'. I don't think I have anything.
