This creamer belonged to my paternal grandmother. My mom had it for years and I got it when she passed away. I have no idea how old it is, but it is special because it belonged to a grandmother that I never knew.
This desk and chair belonged to my hubby's paternal grandmother. I was so thrilled when it was offered to us, and now lives in my daughter's room.
These pearls also belonged to hubby's paternal grandmother. They are yellowed with age, but the beads are such a nice size.
This cup and saucer belonged to my hubby's maternal grandmother. She had a teacup collection, and when she passed away everyone was allowed to take a pick. As I am low on the totum pole, the older vintage cups were all gone. But I'm very happy to have this one that belonged to "Granny".
This vase was my Mom's. I can remember it being in our living room ever since I was a little child.
The marking on the bottom. Unfortunately, one day while I was dusting I accidently knocked it over after it came to live in my house. I tried to piece it back together, but as you can see, there is a huge boo-boo on it. I still love it though, because it was my Mom's.
And this watch belonged to my hubby's paternal grandfather. My hubby's Dad gave it to him one year as a gift. I found this display case, so it stays under glass.
What part of your family heritage do you have? I did not come from a big family. Both of my parents passed away when I was in my early 20's. But my hubby came from a large family that I have adopted as my own. My in laws were very actively involved in the lives of their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren until they passed away at ages 91 and 95. Now THAT is a true family heritage.
Wishing you a wonderful thrifting week!
