My oldest daughter and I are the only ones in the family who celebrate Sweetest Day. We give small bags of candy to my other daughter and her family, but we try to have something special for each other. My daughter made this wonderful mosaic of pieces of a favorite Roseville vase that I had dropped and shattered along with slate-like remnants from my old childhood home which had been torn down. The center picture is one of me with my mother, sister and if you look closely, our beagle Sissy, taken in 1945 near the back porch of the now-demolished house.
She also gave me a vintage gravy boat with a wonderful design. Today it held some premium toffee from a local candy shop but in the future it will hold one of her sweet fresh flower arrangements.
We went out for lunch and then stopped at a favorite antique mall where I picked up a few more small pieces for my daughter to use for flowers:
There’s no lid for the sugar bowl, but that really doesn’t matter since I only want the pieces used for decorative purposes.
I couldn’t resist a more practical bowl for my kitchen. I like the 1930s-40s Hot Oven bowls which measure about 4 inches in diameter and I especially like the vintage design on this one.
Now, we’ll settle in on this rainy night to watch a show from the Lewis and Hathaway series via Netflix. It was a very good Sweetest Day.
