Maybe I like old things because I am old!  I have a few antiques and am not one to visit antique stores, but if and when I do, I see such classy, well made things.

I have my grandmother's china, my mother's silverware, we have a 'grandfather' clock from Germany, a old timey telephone,with no dial, (you spoke into the ear piece and told an operator who you wanted to talk to), a hall tree and a china cabinet that was my Aunt and Uncles, and we inherited it when they passed away. When I saw my title picture for today, it brought back memories.

Do you have 'old' things that brings back sweet memories?  Share with us.

Did you play this game, or do you even know what it is?


  1. Red Rover, Red Rover, send Linda on over!! Of course I remember!

    I have my mother's cedar chest. I need to have it refurbished some day. I have heard the cedar can be lightly sanded to bring back the scent. It also needs to be refinished on the outside. I need to decide who gets it, when I am done with it. It is really sad that the younger generation doesn't seem to care about the old family things. I also have a chest, and a table that were my grandmothers, and quite a few glass pieces that I treasure.

    Wishing you a good day, too!!

  2. Old things can be beautiful, like the china in your picture. I love it. I like looking at antiques in the stores and flea markets. I have a few things I've inherited. Bob's mother's depression ware, a set of cut-glass dishes and goblets from my mother. Before I got married, my father took an old wash stand, stripped the paint off it, and refurbished the beautiful wood grain and gave it to me as a wedding gift. I still have it and it still looks beautiful. In our "throw-away" society, the younger generation isn't interested in acquiring our old stuff. I think it's sad.
    Hope you're having a great day.

  3. I love old things. One of my favorites is a watch that was my Grandma's. My mom had it made into a pendant.
    I loved Red Rover!

  4. I love antiques!!! I love antiquing and have several pieces of furniture, glasswear, dishware etc. Thanks for a great post! Love it. Blessings (and I remember Red Rover!!)
