Misty eyed Granny
OMG! why oh why does Granny keep all this stuff.
Can you believe she wanted a little pink button, so out comes the great big bin of buttons. We were sifting through them and granny was telling me where she got some of them from. You could see her face going back
a million years (I think).
We dug very deep into that big tub. I thought I might get lost in it.
Look at these pretty buttons, some of them went on a jacket for Granny. She wore it to her daughters wedding.( Years ago.did you hear me Years ago.)
Granny is perplexed as to what these would have been on. They are round like a ball with an insert of flashing blue glass in the middle. They belonged to her Great, great Aunt.
Wow I wish you could see these for real, all sparkling in every colour. Granny goes all misty eyed when she talks about these buttons. They were on a ball gown in the middle 1960's. She tell me to Not knock them off the table because they are REAL. I thought all buttons were real, because other wise you couldn't do them up.
This is a pretty on like a flower.
I guess these came of a brave soldiers coat. I wonder where that soldier fought?
Wow!!! Granny bought out a little treasure chest she was given by a friend before Christmas.
There were gold chains and cuff links, Fob chain, plus buttons. I must tell you something secret. Don't tell any one but Granny took off 100 year old ear wax off some old earrings......
I love this button with the Diamond in the middle. It is very heavy. Now do you think granny needs to make me a Dinner suit so I can wear those cuff links. (I really don't like wearing pants.)
I just thought I would ask you all a very personal question. Granny has gone out of the room, so I can talk about it. The thing is..... It is Valentines day coming up, and I don't like crowds at the shops. So this is the plan.!!!!!
See this little bear; WELL it was given to Granny about 2 years ago, from a dear friend of Granny's;
I was thinking,.... if I hid it for a couple of weeks, and wrapped it up do you think I could give it to her for Valentines day. Because it has a little heart, and says Hugs 5cents. I thought it would be Ok.
I have looked around the house and I can't see another thing I could give her except a big smooch.
PLEASE let me know what you think?
I'm so exhausted, it is a glass of hot chocolate and peanut butter and off to bed.
See you all next week.
