I'm a pretty sentimental gal, so I'll be right at home at this Heirloom Party
hosted by Marie at Emma Calls Me Momma.
My parents gave this to me after my husband and I were married. We took it to a professional furniture restorer to remove the many layers of grime and varnish. It was in my Dining Room until we moved to this house, and now it's in our family area in the basement. It has a shelf underneath that holds some silver trays and collectible Crabtree & Evelyn bisquit tins.
Original Hardware and beveled mirror.
An old Hull apple cookie jar and stove set were also from my Grandmother's kitchen.
The salt shaker met an untimely fate a few years ago,
so I need to give Mr. Pepper his mate back.
This red velvet autograph book is also hers,
with entries from friends which date from 1889.
I wish I had a "macro" setting so you could see
the handwriting flourishes on some of the pages.
And a foil decal of a bird in flight.
Thank you for letting me share a few of my heirlooms.
Have a sweet day full of memories,
