Angels, Heirloom and Myths

07 Jan

The Christmas Angels are still flying in our lovely small town of Redruth.

Redruth’s Angels

We’ve been tidying away all the Christmas things today, among them, this beautiful bowl with its matching ladle. We always use it for bread sauce for Christmas dinner. It is the last piece of a dinner service that my Mum and Dad were given as a Wedding present in 1939 so is a very special treasure to me.

I have loved myths and legends since I was very young so to be given Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology for Christmas was a real treat. I have so enjoyed reading these tales again and loved this fresh interpretation.

    So special to have that piece of dinnerware from your mother’s collection. It’s a very attractive pattern.

      It is treated with such love and care. I wonder if we should use it more than just at Christmas rather than treat it as ‘the good silver.’ 🙂
