TWO TREASURES belonging to My TWO Great- Grandmothers

Firstly from Hodson Bottom, Chiseldon  in Wiltshire Maria Barrett's cup

Then from Conisbrough, Yorkshire 

a baby's entertainment collection collected by Mary Ann Addy.

Early Victorian plastic charms ? collected and strung on silk...

Do you have simple items like this that have been kept and passed on in the family? 


  1. No, sadly I have very little, but I wish I did - these are so very gorgeous, I adore the little cup!

  2. Thanks Gretel -it often seems so silly to keep these little items-they just seem to 'live' somewhere around the house.

    Think we shared a ovely sunny day on the Cotswolds today!
