My sweet Grandma Jingles (as affectionately called by my children) recently sent me a package. She had decided to move again into an assisted living facility and had to downsize a bit. She thought that I would probably adore and treasure the child's tea set she played with as a girl.
I am overjoyed that the dishes were well loved and have a few chips and cracks.
Also nestled in the package was this set of small glass dishes. I guessed that they they were salt cellars but the larger dish had me wondering. A quick call to granny revealed that this is also a child’s play set. She said her older sister, Edna, had one as a girl and my great grandmother, Emma, would give them tinned peaches to fill the bowls with.
The small picture that I placed within the vignette is of the “Laura” plantation in Louisiana. Which reminds me that I still need to share all of my New Orleans adventures.
