She gave it to my Aunt for the cottage. My aunt had the fabric shade made for it.
This picture hung in my Grandparents home for years. It lights up. Many evenings I came down to their home (my husband and I lived in an upstairs apartment) and would see this light on and my grandparents hand in hand in prayer....they would have been in their 80s.
I made this fork and spoon for my mother when I was first married. I did ceramics.
This lamp has been in my Aunt's home for years. Always the base lit up for a nightlight.
This coffee pot is the only wedding gift my aunt has left. I believe it must be a drip style pot.
These are ration stamps during WWII that my uncle had saved.
This is the booklet he received when he reported for the draft.
This is my aunt's china. I have mentioned before that it is because of her beautiful tablescapes that I love it so. These dishes will someday grace my table.
These are the only 2 pieces left of a gift my uncle gave my aunt before they were married. It was a complete dresser set. I just love these.
During my visit I was able to go through many family pictures, old notes and letters, and my uncle's tools. I will show soon the precious tool I was able to bring home as a remembrance piece of his.
It was difficult to leave my aunt. She is not as strong as I remember her and she is showing the strain of life without her soul mate. But she is a Godly woman and so important in the woman I am today. Although none of these pieces are of much monetary value, they are priceless to me.
