Timeless Treasures

You've carried milk from the dairy.
Held daffodils in springtime.
Lived through Victorian days to Cyber days.
Had a mishap now and then.
Been cradled by grandmother's hands.
Traveled an ocean wide.
Is treasured beyond words .

My wife has her great-great grandmothers that came from Norway on the sailing ship so very long ago. It amazes me that it is still unblemished after all those years.

I like seeing all of your treasures. I think of the same things as use old things as to where they have been before I owned them. I have old cafe ware that came from a cafe that my grandmother worked back in the early 1900's. I think of its former use and what kind of food was served on them.

I have a real soft spot for Victorian jugs, they are so multi-functional and beautifully decorated and, as you point out, have such wonderful stories to tell. Now, if only they could talk!
Have a great weekend.

That is gorgeous. I love old stuff but mine will no doubt go into the bin or maybe eBay when we pop our clogs. My children are not interested in "clutter" as they call it.
