My dear friend J arrived with this great Paris-themed box - love it!
Great Box, thinks I, immediately considering it as a home for scarves, necklaces or other goodies.
But there was more:
The pretty box contained a whole range of Sukin skin care products!
All Australian, natural, chemical free, and never tested on animals. Win! Win!
I had mentioned that I was considering how I could reduce the carcinogens in my environment, and J ran with the challenge.
I am having a lovely time testing them all - Spoilt! Big Time ...
Mr Cardinal and I visited the Woolloongabba Antique Centre ...
and another bird has come home to our nest.
Mr C wonders if the lorikeets will fly into the house to say hello - mmm...
As you do, we spent considerable time spotting antique objects identical to those remembered from our family homes.
Which started me thinking about the precious things we have inherited, still use, and treasure:
This beautiful table cloth belonged to my mother.
Queen of my cloth collection.
Mr Cardinal's Mum owned this large crotchet rug,
still in favour and still in use at our place ...
Mum gave me this teaset when I was married.
It belonged to her mother, so goes Way Back!
Rarely used, but greatly loved ..
How sweet is the little apple blossom Shelley dish.
I have loved it since childhood, and will treasure it forever!
Do you have special items handed down the generations,
and still in use?
May your week be filled with roses :)
