So...I have my windowsill cluttered up with Sara treasures. Here are my goodies...a glass candy dish that belonged to my mother-in-law...she was the sweetest lady in the world. In the dish are sand dollars and sea urchins found during our beach walks, an empty robin's egg I found on our driveway, and a glass pig. The pig has no significance...I just think he's cute.The small red glass cup says "Roseneath" and is being used as a toothpick holder. This was on display at my parent's house as far back as I can remember, and then my sister had it, but I don't know the history of it. The photos are of our first dog...a Siberian Husky named Bailey, and one of the last photos taken of my sister and me...Canada Day the year before she passed away.
My wee chicken collection...
An old fashioned mason jar filled with beach glass collected during our beach walks. An old marmalade jar given to me by DIL, holding two fantastic forks artistically created by Linda at the LTCreatesJewelry etsy shop. I ordered them to use in one of my stained glass windows...I was going to create one or two "kitchen windows" filled with stained glass and kitchen doodads...but I liked the forks so much I haven't dared use them yet! (by the way, Linda makes lovely jewelry too if you're looking for a unique Christmas gift). Lastly, the crystal butterfly was given to me by my dad...a most unusual gift from him. He used to give me practical things like outdoor thermometres and plastic things to put under your car tires when you get stuck...that kind of thing. So I treasure my butterfly, and it throws lovely rainbows on the kitchen ceiling on sunny days.
What treasures do you have on your kitchen window sill?
