Old gray hair
Old rocking chairs
Old people
Old age.

One of two very, very old bowls that belonged to my MIL's grandmother. Well over 100 years old. Thus, OLD and was always special to my MIL. Now special to us. If that is all you have left from your great grandmother, then it is sacred, don't you think?

I agree, anything we have left is very special!

What lovely soft colours. I have a plate that belonged to my great-grandmother (although it was made in the 40s) and it is very special to me.
