Although my precious items are very old they are new to me, I inherited them only yesterday! The two items I'm sharing today hold wonderful memories for me and take me right back to my childhood.
My mum and aunt have the unfortunate task of emptying my grandparents' home after the recent death of my grandad and my mum had asked if there was anything I wanted, of course there were things I wanted, things I knew nobody else would want.
When I was younger and we went to visit my grandparents we would always go in to the house using the side door. No matter whether we were going to visit my dad's parents or my mum's parents we would always use the side door, never the front door, and although both properties were very different and miles apart the side doors always went to the same place, the kitchen.
As you entered my mum's parent's house the first thing you would see was this:
The second thing I would see as I moved further in to the kitchen was on the windowsill just above the sink:
So now I have these two lovely treasures full of memories in my home, do I care that the don't fit in with the other bits and pieces I have? Of course not because I want them to stand out like the precious things they are.
I hope that you will head over to Sian's now to tell your story and read the other stories being told there.
Thanks for stopping by
