These candle sticks are one of my favorite thing’s I own. They belonged to my Grandmother Clare, my father’s mother. My grandmother died from a stroke when my father was 16 and grandfather Isador died 6 months later of a broken heart. I am sad I never meet my grandparents but I have always felt a special bond to my Jewish root and my grandparents. My grandfather owned 3 bakeries in San Francisco, which are long gone now. When he was ten he moved to Germany to apprentice as a baker. Ten, can you imagine?
I know nothing about these candle sticks except that they were my grandmothers. I would like to think they are a family treasure. Since her entire family (except two people) we killed in the holocaust, I am sure family items were treasured that much more. The candlesticks are always in the center of my dining table. The pitcher is a garage sale find. I ADORE pink luster-ware and so wish I had more of it. The plate is a gift from my mother. I have four of them in different colors. I have been inspired by Jody's wild -flower bouquets. Unfortunately flowers set off my allergies but I discovered if I make small tussy-mussy bouquets they will not set off my allergies. So this is my tussy-mussy of the day! Thank you Jody for the inspiration. I off to Post Townsend for my birthday celebration with my mother and my sister. I will post pictures (wait till I tell you what my hubby got me !!) Have a yummy Saturday !!!
