The last time I posted a show and tell, I shared this antique pitcher and bowl that came from my husband's grandmother, and you got a peek of the picture behind it.
This picture was handed down to us after my father-in-law's passing and it originally came from my husband's grandmother's home.
This picture hung in the living room of Grandmother, and my father-in-law later had it in the breakfast nook of his kitchen.
It is an early American scene of a loving mother, teaching her little daughters to clean and shine the copper items in their home. I wonder what their conversation was as they worked together and the girls each did her part to help. I don't know which darling daughter is my favorite. Each one sits so sweetly on her little chair- and is so intent in her work:)
I have some copper accent pieces around my kitchen that go along with the theme of this picture. Here are some chafing pans on top of the hutch near the picture.
Two tea kettles and a copper bowl decorate the top of the refrigerator. One of these tea kettles was found at Good Will and its handle matches the other white and blue porcelain handle perfectly.
And if your stop by for cup of tea, this is the tea kettle that I will heat the water in:)
I have to say that I do not shine my copper pieces very often. But if I could pull up a chair into this circle and and meet these little ladies, I would happily join in on the chores with them.
Be sure to visit Kelli's blog to see what lovelies she is showing today. And check all the other treasures being shown by the ladies who are participating in today's show and tell.
