focus on life: aged beauty
Aged beauty. Honestly? It was hard to narrow this one down because I cherish older things, especially items from our family.
This is my grandparent's dough bowl. My grandfather, Pome, or Grandmother Bailey would mix and knead biscuit dough in this wooden bowl every night. I have no idea how old it is but I cherish each and every age mark. It proudly rests at the center of my kitchen table.
We have several much loved tea pots from Jeff's grandmother and this is one of my favorites with it's creamy white and blue surface, black handle and tea stains.
Like the dough bowl, our tea pots are openly displayed as a reminder of beloved family and days gone by.
