Grandmother's Gifts


Today is 2nd Time Around with Diane over at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 Words

this is my first time to do 2nd Time Around with Diane,I am showing two piecse that were given to me by my Mother.These two pieces were my Grandmother's and were passed to me after her death.I think they are called Carnival Glass because of the coloes in them.I am not sure how old they are ,but she had them along time and I have had them for about 8 years now so I guess they are pretty old.I have a couple more pieces from my Grandmother and treasure them .It is nice to have things that have been passed down over the years in the family.

The back of the candy dish,it is hard to see but it has grapes and leaves on it.The dis is gold with reds,pinks ,yellow colors .

Inside of the candy dish.



This is a serving dish with fruits made into the glass.


For more great 2nd Time Around finds go over and visit Diane and you will find alot of great things that people have gotten from thrift finds,passed on from families ,or just somethings they found and added to their other treasures.

Carnival glass is collectible. I wonder if that rectangle glassware could be used as a jello mold? Happy 1st Second Time Around.
