I know you all are always wondering how my family kept all the things they did?
I truly think in past times it was not a "disposable" society and when you had something you kept it.
So many of the things I show you, I say they were my Grandmothers. But many of the things I got from her was actually HER Grandmothers.
I inherited my Great Great Grandmothers linens, dishes, silver, glass ware and other treasures.
One item is this tiny little stoneware jug.
It use to sit on my Grandmothers corner cabinet in her Living Room.
After my Grandfather died, the cabinet went to my Mom, and after she died I now have it in my Dining Room. Mom kept all the items in the same spot as her Mom and of course I have not broke with tradition!
The little jug sits on the top shelf with my Great Grandmothers doll.
Tucked inside is a little note, I have to take it out with tweezers.
In my Mom's handwriting
When you turn it over is says in my Grandmother's handwriting,
This must of been a cherished piece. Where did she get it? Why did it mean so much that 4 generations later is still has a place of honor?
I guess I will never know.
But I do know that Margaret Ellen Wilson Cash was a sweet caring Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
My Grandmother loved her Grandmother dearly and I felt through her I got to know her too.
She did not die until my Mom was in her late 20's and married.
She was 93.
I love this picture, the baby is my Grandmother Ruth Virginia, her Mother Nina Pearl, Grandmother Margaret Ellen and her Great Grandmother Keziah.
I also have all their jewelry boxes.
Maybe it does not matter how small or insignificant a piece maybe. To me it is priceless if it was cherish by one of my dear Grandmothers.
