Do you ever look around at your home and garden and realise how many of your treasured possessions were actually given to you from loved ones,friends or family, past or present. While taking a moment today to sit,my mind was quite still. My eyes wondered around the garden from where I was sitting in the sunroom. Then a little time later, around the house. This Noritake dinner set was left to me by my late mother,it was a present to her from my brother in 1966 when he came home on RAR from Vietnam where he was serving with the Australian army.
The little bell with its sunflowers from a late dear friend on our anniversary,I think of her whenever my little grandson wants to ring it.
This pot we Christened the pregnant lady,passed on to us by an aunt when they left South Australia 20years ago to move to Victoria. my aunt handmade it here in South Australia.
The bird bath which lay broken in the back garden of a house our younger son and his family bought. We salvaged it and my hubby cemented it back together and I mosaiced it.
