tuesday treasures.

just like on thursday, i'm a little late coming to the table.
this time it's due to my extreme laziness when it comes to kitchen cleanliness.

the treasure i'm showing you this week are these very pretty bowls.
they were wedding presents to my grandparents over 60 years ago and my grandmother recently thought i should have them.

i actually use them, for things like chocolate mousse and to put lollies in. i don't see the point of having pretty things that you don't use and just keep in the cupboard. and everytime i use them they make me think of my grandmother (who i don't visit nearly often enough) and my late grandfather.
it's my grandma's birthday next month, she's 80! i can't wait to go and visit :D

check out clare's craftroom for more tuesday treasures.

Lovely dishes and I agree we should use things rather than put them away in a cupboard .

They are lovely, and what better way to show your appreciation that using them.

Those are beautiful - I agree, why have stuff in the cupboard if you don't use it........... enjoy it...... Hugz
