Tuesday Treasure

Good morning and welcome Through My Back Door. The coffee is ready and I am glad you are here to share the last Tuesday Treasure. Yes, it is "the mirror". Many of you know about the mirror, but some of you don't. This mirror hung in my paternal grandparents home all my life. And before. For years it hung in the kitchen above the wash pan. After they got an inside bathroom it hung on the closed in back porch you went through on the way to the bathroom. My grandparents, my Dad, and everyone of my aunts and uncles combed their hair by looking in this mirror. This mirror has seen the faces of many of my loved ones. When I look in it, I remember those it has "seen" and I feel blessed to have it in my bathroom. You see I  think I would try to grab this in case of a fire. It reflects much more than we see.
Happy Thanksgiving and please just enjoy the day with our real treasures, family and friends

  5. That was just so beautifully written. I love thinking about the stories of antiques... Family heirlooms and such. What happened on a certain day? How was it used? If only they could be doors to just catch a glimpse of the past for real. What a lovely mirror! And story... Love you, friend!
