Photo Hunt Theme...ANTIQUE myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics

It is fun to participate in the Saturday Photo Hunt that is hosted by tnchick. This week's photo hunt theme is: ANTIQUE. If you would like to play along click on the link below.

Just The Two of Us
set up a small display of some of the antiques items that
belonged to my Grandmother. Starting on the left is an
antique lady's head. Something interesting are the real silk stockings
which she treasured having in ever color under the rainbow during
World War II. These were especially a treasured item being that they
were silk and she owned them during the depression, silk was also
needed for parachutes during WWII. They are nearly
infallible to destruction. lol I draped the stockings off of the antique
hat boxes, as every hat back then came in it's own designer
box. Then I set out three hats that belonged to her mother
there on top of the hat boxes. One is made of feathers,
one is silk with a broach on the front, and a white real fur hat.

The 2nd photo are post cards, the Semi-Centennial of the
Lincoln-Douglas Debat Oct. 15 1908.
For President of U. S. A., Wm Jennings Bryan.
Then the 1904 St. Louis Fair post card is supposedly valuable,
so I thought you might enjoy a close up of these.

Lastly, my Grandmother's china. On the back it has a shield,
ADMIRATION, MYOTT, Staffordshire England. They are
numbered, and have a crown and under that
Myott Son & Co LTQ, made in England.

So it's just the two of us hoping that if you would like to share
anything about
the ANTIQUES we have displayed please feel
free to enlighten us. Some day, I hope to do a little research
for myself. Hope you have little treasures around the house that
are meaningful to you!

I love this selection! One of my favorite eras is WWII, so that is so fun about the silk stockings and hat boxes! The English china is beautiful and the postcards are facinating. (My mom went to the Wm Jennings Bryan college!)
Have a blessed weekend, Pamela!

I bet she looked quite regal in her hat and silk stockings...would you happen to have a picture of her back then?
:-D

 
At 5:44 PM, Blogger Linda said...

Great pictures Pamela. I can remember my Mom talking about what a precious commodity silk stockings were during WWII. The hat boxes are gorgeous. They just don't package things the way they used to.
Have a great weekend.

I must say you have some great collections there. But, I'm not sure I will consider objects from WW2 for antiques.. If so, I could have taken a selfportrait:)))

Have a nice Sunday

p.s. my hubby and I got married when I was 19, too, and so now it's just the two of us..plus 3 kids..3 cats..a weiner dog..and a couple of pet birds and mice!! It's a lot of fun though... It's neat to read your stories, a bit like having a glimpse into the future!

It's so interesting to see the old keepsakes. Colored silk stockings, hats and hat boxes...what fun! And that china is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
Glad you had a happy Valentine's Day :)

Pamela, all the antiques are just lovely. I especially love the china. I wish my grandmother would pass down some of her china and antiques to me. There are about 30 grand and great-grand children so my odds are not so good. I do love to look and examine at every visit.

 
At 4:01 PM, Blogger Autumn said...
