Show and Tell Friday!

(Click on Logo)

Kelli at There is No Place Like Home, is hosting her Show and Tell---it is a wonderful Meme, so hop on over to her lovely blog and join in the fun! Thank you Kelli!

Today I am going to show you a little bird. She belonged to my Grandmother---my mother's mother--I never met her, she passed away before I was born--but this little bird sat on my Great mother's dresser, My Mother's Grandmother--did you understand that...LOL--well anyway, I used to play with it when I small, very small about 4 or 5--my Great Grandmother gave it to me--While My Great Grandmother, Grandmother and Mother are no longer here--I open up that little wing and smell the sweet smell of the perfume and for a moment it brings me back to those days:)
See how the little wing opens?

Thank you so much for visiting my Show and Tell!

It never ceases to amaze me the different items people have. I have never seen a perfume bottle holder and certainly nothing like yours. That is a keeper!

How cute is that! and it was your Grandmother's! I love it, it's so precious :). I've never seen anything like it, I wonder what your Grandmother kept in it :).

Have a Fantastic Friday!

OOps--I am sorry everyone--I guess I wasn't very clear in my post--when you open the wing it is filled with perfume--the kind you would rub on...:)

A tangible link to your heritage...that's what your little birdie is. It's not just it's being there either, it's that olfactory connection. It is so amazing that a certain sight, sound, smell, song or touch can instantly trigger the memory.
Blessings on your weekend.
