Show and Tell Friday

I am joining Show and Tell Friday, hosted by Cindy at My Romantic Home. ( This is the first time I have ever joined an event, so please bear with me...

Both my paternal grandfather and his twin brother were Methodist ministers, born in 1899.

This was a stand for flowers used in the church.

My grandfather made a pulpit type contraption to set on top of the stand, and he used it when speaking graveside at a funeral.

I love the beauty in the details and the craftsmanship.

What a beautiful treasure!

That is so beautiful! So nice to see it handed down too. You've got some lovely things going on over here. I promise to do a better job of coming over more often to see how you are. :)

It's so nice to have family treasures around the house. I think it helps to make it "a home". I am your newest follower. I hope that you will stop in to visit me soon.
