I haven't done one of Kelli's Show & Tell Fridays in a long time. For those of you that are new to my site, welcome! I am so glad that you came by for a visit.
Below are three of my most prized possessions. The first one is a cranberry colored glass canister and cup that belonged to my great grandma Adams. This is the same grandmother whose lovely french wedding shoes and lace I posted pictures of months ago. She had the most beautiful blue eyes that God ever made. They just hypnotized you. I have to find a picture of her to share with you all.
I especially love the cup, because of what is engraved on it. It was given to her by my great grandfather on their wedding day back in 1903. I hold this glass with such care on that rare occasion, and keep it locked up in my china cabinet. It is just so dear to me.
And I am assuming that this is the date, and my mother has confirmed that it was passed down in her family (which is mine too of course, but you get what I mean). So, if this is the date, it is even more special to me because that means it was made exactly 100 years before I was born. Talk about a coincidence. I think the bowl was meant to be mine.
I hope that you enjoyed my treasures. Have a great weekend and visit again soon!
