Is there something special that you remember from childhood visits to your grandparents home? Was there something they owned that you loved - maybe even coveted?
My Grandma Win had a beautiful vase, well to me anyway. It always looked like it belonged in a fancy house - well in the imagination of this child it did.
I can always remember Grandma having it on show and I loved it from when I was very little right through my teens and into adulthood.
When my Grandma died, my Mum inherited the vase and it sat on her bookcase for a number of years. Mum knew that I had always loved this vase and so one day she offered it to me.
All these years later, I still adore the vase and it has pride of place in my house. It is probably not worth much in a monetary sense, but it is priceless to me, something that takes my back to my childhood and my love for my Grandma Win.
So here are some photos, I hope you love it as much as me. (photos start with the face that I love best and then work around the vase)
