My sister went to the Old House the other day with her camera. These are the photos she took of a shelf in the kitchen.
I love old mixing bowls and that beat-up cookbook was like a Bible when I was a young girl learning to cook. The gourd was used to dip water from a bucket.
There's my favorite yellow Fiestaware mixing bowl and a sweet, little gravy boat with strawberries on it.
There's some red glass from the State Fair and Daddy's baby dish, rattle and silver cup.
There's Daddy's piggy bank and a tin that Aunt Necel used to put tea cakes in.
Oh, and there are my Cheery Chintz cup and saucer and a few pitchers from my great-grandmother's pitcher collection.
I'll show you another shelf on Wednesday.
When I saw these photos, they made me so happy... but then a great sadness came over me. I just cannot put this type of homesick into words.
