Picture Perfect ~ Competition Week 2 ~ • Before My Time •


Before My Time.

This is a small Beswick Cruet Set dating back from the 1920's
It was given to me by my mother as a Birthday present. Mum kept it for thirty or more years and I have had it for many years myself. On the box it came in, my mother has written " I have had this set for more than thirty years. Please pass it on to your Grand Daughter. Love Mum"

And so I will 'After My Time!'

  2. Thank You Lyn. You will be just the right girl to receive her birthday crockery and I hope that you too will be able to talk to your grand daughters about how 'special' it all is!
