Tuesday Treasures


So in the continued cleanup and sort out for my virtual garage sale, I came across a few things that were my paternal Grandmothers that I thought I might share. I have very few things that were my Grandmothers as she passed away when I was only 9 and I am pretty much estranged from my father so I haven't had the chance to claim all of the things I know that she wanted me to have. So this is pretty much it. Her little christening mug, a carnival glass punch bowl mug and her little Toby jug. That is her in her wedding dress which my Mum actually has at her house, I'm too worried to have it at mine. I had always dreamed that I would wear it on my wedding day, but unfortunately I am around 5'6 and she was about 5' and extremely tiny, so that didn't quite work out!

My Nanna was quite the crafter and was always into the latest "fad" craft. I like to think that she would be so proud of the things I make and would really get into the softies and stuff, I could even imagine her with a blog!

Head over to Melody's to see all the other Tuesday Treasures.

I never met my maternal grandmother, she died before I was born, but she was a knitter and maybe I take after her (I have her name).
My paternal Grandmother taught me how to knit and how to sew, althoug I have no memory of her making something with her hands. I have seen a photo of her wedding day, taken in San Marco square in Venice where they went for the honeymoon, shily smiling to the camera.

Very special treasures indeed and I'm sure she would be thrilled to know you have them. Maybe she is where all your crafting talents come from...what a great legacy.
