an old pretty looker


My grandmother gave me this long before she should have given me anything old...I was still in college and living in ruins and with heathens- yet it survived. I think back to some of the things that I turned my nose up at and did not take care of that she gave me- wicked little girl I was...How would I know that many years later my tastes would refine and I would long for vintage things with life in them? How could I see the future?
I took this out of storage today and plan on cleaning it and finding a nook for it. I think it might have been my great grandmothers... I think I love it with all my heart.

Ooh...I think I love it, too. Find a good home for that treasure, stat!

so pretty.
I love stuff with history... Things that belonged to family are so great to have around you.
