Memories and Treasures

Grandma's antique bowl... true inspiration... and fond memories. This bowl is irresistible ... I have displayed this bowl for many years in my home with it's graciousness and tender memories. I close my eyes and remember precious moments spent with grandma... Although the moments seem fresh and dear... they took place many years ago.... This precious piece of times past affirm how relations live in our hearts and minds... This china bowl is a valuable possession in my eyes... It will belong to my daughter someday.... although she will have the strong connection to it that I feel she will still enjoy it's beauty. The bowl brings back memories of when I would complain I would have nothing to do as a child... grandma would go to her treasured buttons and randomly hide them everywhere and I would spend hours searching them out. It took many years to pass for me to truly appreciate the value of the buttons and the beloved piece of china.....

Hi Marietta, Thank you for the welcome! I am so happy this morning to meet 9 new people and to see what all of you are up to. It is fun to see who is out there and to see their take on life. I loved what you said about retirement and wishing your life away. Great words! I also am a former floral designer and it is HARD work.
Glad to think of you spending your day with a great book and please get some chocolate girl! That will make it perfect. Hope to hear from you again!
