Continuity


The other evening as the sun was setting and shining through the kitchen window,


I liked how it 'hit' this old folk-art wooden bowl.


It seemed to bring the winter scene to life for a few seconds.


This very old bowl hung in Ron's grandmother's kitchen.......


.....then his mother's......


....and now ours.

  2. That's a lovely bowl, Jim. How nice that it's been passed on from generation to generation. Very special.

    1. I guess it hung in their kitchen for 2 generations as Ron's mother was born in the house she lived and died in......it was beside the wood/oil stove on the wall.

  3. Love that kind of continuity. The oldest thing I have in that department is a blue hobnail glass vinegar-and-salt-cellar set that my great-grandmother gave to my grandmother for a wedding present.

    1. Yes it does, Pat. Whoever made it probably didn't have any idea of its longevity.

  6. The bowl looks lovely in the sunlight. And you're right in that they mean so much more when personal history is attached.

    1. That's true Craig. The history of the bowl has been lost but I feel it was done by a 'local artist' around the turn of the 20th century.

    1. Since we are almost surrounded by trees of all types, when the sun gets a change to peek through any time it turns into a MAJOR EVENT!! lol Not really, but we do appreciate it when it happens especially from the west side.
      Thanks Inger, always good to see you here.
