Oh oh oh oooohhh, my little china girl





This cute little pair of vases belong to my "I would die if anything happened to these" group of treasures. Once owned by my Nan who had a wonderful amount of 50's china. Of course the rest of the family in the following decades did not share my views. I was super close to my Nan and in fact still feel that way regardless of having lost her when I was 10. I am told I am very much like her and share many of her traits for which I am happy to wear as a badge. I do not have a picture of her scanned to share with you, but she was lovely, strong and funny. A lady but not a prude or biggot, a good time gal but elegant and real all at once. Yep, call me Madge junior and I will love it.

Hi Madge Junior, couldn't let such a wonderful post go by without comment. It's really nice having something that belonged to someone you love - it's like this little physical link that every time you walk past jogs your memories and brings back the whole way that person made you feel.
