Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday
If you have a love for vintage things, well....you have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.
Hope you all have had a wonderful week. The weeks are speeding by for me, especially since there are events just on the horizon that I am not looking forward to at all. Funny, how that happens when you'd like things to slow down.
A few months ago, my mom asked me if I would like to have a set of mugs that belonged to my grandmother. I said yes, of course I wanted them. I remember my grandmother having these in her cabinet but I really never paid too much attention to them.
The pictures are Norman Rockwell photographs and the theme surrounds the sea and a grandfather.
There are four in the set and they really are neat mugs. These are dated 1985 and I have no idea where my grandma got them from. At first thought, I was inclined to think they might have been a giveaway of some kind, but knowing where she lived, I don't really think that was the case.
On the back of each is a title and a inscription that goes with the photo on the front of the mug. These are remarkably in great condition.
My son has a passion for the sea and the sand and the coast and I thought he might like them. One day I asked him if he would like to have them and he told me yes, one day. So I will keep them for him and hope when that someday comes, he will remember they belonged to my grandma and I hope he takes care of them. I was just glad he said he wanted them, because I can not think of anyone who I would want these to go to. I know he will take care of them, after all, he is my son...and he is a good son.
Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!
