Isn't it strange how some very simple domestic items that were part of your child hood can illicit such strong feelings. My Treasure this week are two such items. The first is a very ordinary green depression glass container which always contained my Grandmothers home grown and home cooked beetroot (delish) and the other is a little covered dish which the peas were served in. It's an Alfred Meakin piece "Marigold" series.
When I visited my Mum recently she asked me if I would like them.....the memories they bought back. Every meal we all had totgether had these two items on the table. I can still see her very clearly in my minds eye dishing up at the table with these two items. She had other pieces in that china but the covered dish is all we have left and it's funny because it's the one I remember.
If you look very carefully in the top left hand corner of the photo of my Nanna you will see the beetroot container on the shelf in my Nanna's kitchen. This photo was taken of her with my Daughter and Son when they were very young. I laughed when I saw this because the beetroot container was very rarely empty must have been waiting for a new crop of beetroot....I love this little photo and can't believe those children are now parents themselves.
MELODY for more wonderful Treasures today.
