Spice of Life
My Mom always added some much spice to my life and I miss her everyday.
Hard to believe next week she will be gone 12 years.
Those years have flown by, but my heart still aches.
While I was on vacation we went to 1515 and MR helped me put some things up.
a addition to the kitchen
hanging above my Grandmothers enamel table.
It is my Mom's spice cabinet.
I found it still in a Rubbermaid tub in the basement, where it had been packed since I brought things home when I had to pack up my childhood home.
Why is it so special to me?
I gave it to my Mom for Christmas in 1975
I saw it at a local gift shop and just knew she would love it.
I made payments on it starting in Nov till I got it paid off with my babysitting money.
I was so excited Christmas morning when she unwrapped it
I think she was happy to.
It hung in her kitchen the next 30 years
Again, how did the time go so fast ?
I gave it a good cleaning
Extra labels were still in the drawer
spices still in the containers
seems to fit the space just right.
My paternal Grandmothers kitchen and Hoosier cabinet, my maternal Grandmothers enamel table and now my Moms spice cabinet. Memories of the women in my life who made me the person I am today.
I think each one of them added some spice to my mix that makes me....."me"
