There comes a time in your life when ‘things’ are just not wanted or needed anymore.
I was thinking that all the things I treasure from what were my Mum’s and my other special people in my life will all be just ‘things’ once I am gone. They are very special to me but to anyone else they are just ‘things’. Too sad.
My Dear Old Aunt of 96 years young is now in a nursing home because that is where her immediate family decided its best for her. She can hardly move and forgets a lot. Her house needed to be cleaned out and I was asked if I wanted anything of hers.
I went to her house with a heavy heart because I know all the ‘things’ in there were treasured by my Dear Old Aunt. They aren’t anything valuable but they are lovely and as none of the other immediate family wanted these items I grabbed them.
I fell in love with these Pink and White Polka Dotted Salt and Pepper shakers and these little white ones as well.
My Dear Old Aunt treasured these little bowls because they were in the glass front cupboard that she had in her lounge to house all her things she loved and thought were special.
I love this little apple bowl and when I have people over for scones and jam, I will put jam in it for them to have jam from.
and this delightful capsicum bowl will be great to have my Tomato Relish that I made last month.
They aren’t valuable things but to me they remind me of my Dear Old Aunt.
She had several vintage sheets packed away too and after seeing people in blog land at how proud they were to find some in the op-shops, I knew I had to bring them home too.
I love them and might make a quilt from them one day…..might just leave them stacked up and just look at them too.
Thanks dear Auntie…..I love you and miss seeing you at your house.
It would have been my son Dylan’s birthday tomorrow…..he would have been 36 years old.
Happy Birthday Dylan….I love you and miss you lots.
Hugs to all……
