Pretty Hand-Me-Downs

As I mentioned in my Mother's Day post, I spent the day antiquing
with my Mom on Saturday.

However, I didn't really buy anything, because nothing ever seems to compare to the pretty stuff that she always brings me.

Her touch is everywhere in our home. In fact our house wouldn't even look like it does with out all of the pretty hand-me-downs that she has passed on to me.

It's making my hubby a little crazy. There is always a little more...
or just one more piece... As soon as he hears my mom say " Do you remember that dish of Grandma Ruth's"? He just rolls his eyes and walks off shaking his head.
Fortunately, he knows how I treasure these pretties.

I really have to thank him for tolerating my collection.

Be Blessed!
