I was given my grandmother’s pear collection and have it displayed in the cupboard in our dining room.
I love these pear candle stick holders…sure wish I knew how old they were.
Another piece I love is the white bowl with pears on it…have no idea how old it is either.
The pears beside the bowl is a find that I just picked up at the GW last week. They are in a rusty tin with a gold ribbon hanging down from it. I thought it was perfect to display with my grandma’s collection.
The other pear candle holder is on the shelf above with an old vintage plate the my sister gave to me with pears on it. I see our champagne glasses from our wedding in this photo below…our 34th wedding anniversary is coming up on September 1st.
I’ve had the pear salt & pepper shakers in the photo below since 1979…I got them with my first set of dishes when we were first married. The dishes had fruit on them and of course…pears were one of the fruits. Those dishes are long gone, but I’m so glad that I kept the salt & pepper shakers and could display them with my grandma’s pear collection.
The pink champagne glasses in the above photo was a gift from our girls…when they surprised us with a 25th wedding anniversary party. I just remembered that my mom gave us my grandparent’s 25th anniversary plate and my grandma had given it to my mom on my parent’s 25th anniversary…and I will past it on to my oldest daughter on their 25th anniversary. See my pumpkin water pitcher hiding behind the champagne glasses…can’t wait to put that on display when Fall gets here…won’t be long!!
Been thinking of my grandma a lot here lately and missing her. She lived to be 95 years old and has been gone for 8 years now, but a part of her is always with me.
She was the best grandma ever and I hope that I’m following in her foot steps with my grandkids.
