Tuesday Treasures...

These old kettles were given to me about 40+ years ago...they belonged to a dear old couple that lived over the road from us and was given to me when they sadly passed away.
The couple were well into their 80's and I was told the kettles were wedding presents to them..
I was sad to think the family didn't want them...but I treasure them and think of that lovely old couple who adored each other so much....

Pop on over to Clare's Craft Room ...Clare has been hosting Tuesday's treasures for a few weeks now, see all the lovely treasures the girls are sharing today....

  1. These kettles must be quite old now and it's wonderful that you treasure them. (Maybe Joe the chef would be a good caretaker for them someday???)

  6. Your kettles are such an elegant shape. Aren't you lucky they came your way when the family didn't want them rather than being thrown out like so many things. A lovely reminder of lovely neighbours.

  12. What gorgeous kettles. At least you know that they are loved at your house instead of being hidden away in a cupboard with someone that doesn't want them.

  13. Love the kettles. As my elderly neighbours moved away, I asked for plants from their gardens. Now when I look at my Cooktown orchids and bromiliads flowering I remember the Banneys and Guests.
