This week's color is a breeze for us because mom LOVES pewter!
If you want to play along, just let Blue know and you're in!
This beer stein is pewter!
Gram gave mom the pewter inkwell and the feather on the right belongs to Dauby, our swan!
When mom and dad bought our house, our kitchen was painted turquoise and hot pink! Yes, it is shocking and mom was most anxious to lose those horrible colors! The chimney cupboard doors behind these pewter candlesticks were also painted turquoise and when mom removed the many coats of paint, these candle flame burn marks appeared! YIKES! Luckily someone put out the fire before the house went up in smoke!
The flame marks are there forever as a constant reminder!
Mom loves pewter and she always loved gram's set of pewter dinnerware! One year gram surprised mom and sent her the whole set! The boxes weighed a ton!
Only very special company gets to eat off of these beautiful dishes!Pewter salt and pepper shakers!
Mom bought this pewter Santa when she was in Minnesota one year visiting gram and gramp when they lived there. She bought it in a Scandinavian shop called Ingebretsen's!
Next week's color is cinnamon!
So until next time..............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
