A few weeks ago I shared with you the sherry glasses that belonged to my Nanny. (Dads mum)
This week I am sharing a tea spoon that belonged to my Granny (mum's mum). Granny passed away when I was about 15 and I had not seen her since we left England when I was 5. So my memories of Granny are quite fuzzy. I do remember that she loved to bake and always had a treat like jam tarts to eat when we came to visit. I also remember she had an octagonal window in her entry passage with a vase of plastic daffodils in the window. Isn't it funny the little things like that you remember. Poppy grew tomatoes in a glass house in the back yard, and I can still remember the smell of that greenhouse, a cross between rotting compost and home grown tomatoes. Granny and Pop lived in Stratford Upon Avon, which is where William Shakespeare came from.
Granny loved to drink tea, and she gave my mum a brass tea spoon for her tea caddy. The tea spoon is a souvenir from a holiday in Devonshire, a seaside spot where you could ride a donkey on the beach.
Hop on over to visit Melody and her friends here to see what other treasures are being shared this week
