Ever since I can remember whenever we would go visit my great aunt Lil's house she always had a pitcher of iced tea on the kitchen counter in a brown pitcher. I loved her iced tea and I loved her, espcially her wit and humor. Come to find out in my adult years that her brown pitcher was actually a Marcrest brand dot and daisy design. Horribly, my beloved Aunt Cheryl and I used to joke as to who would get the treasured brown pitcher upon Aunt Lil's passing. Yes, I no it was a tad morbid but we were just kidding around. One day when visiting my in-laws I went to a local antique shop and there it was a replica of Aunt Lil's pitcher. With lightening speed I swooped it up and took it home. Last week while doing my weekly thrift store run I came across a matching cookie jar w/o the lid. For a meer $2.99 I bought it and am using it to hold my cooking utensils. The nice memories I get each time I look at them are priceless. Do you have a family heirloom that brings you joy? Cheers.
