Gathering


Hello, Dear Ones.
I've been gathering my "supplies" for this olden vignette.

 It all started with this olden aluminum colander.
 This belonged to my grandmother.
 You've probably seen my scale but the measuring cup...
 it belonged to my Mother.
 This little biscuit cutter belonged to my Mother 
and she used to make the most melt in your mouth biscuits you've ever tasted. 
She cut many a little round morsel using this little magical kitchen piece.
 Next I have my Mother's egg beater.
 Now the little sifter. 
I don't know who this belonged to as I bought it at a garage sale 
but I gathered it up so fast!
 Then I gathered my Mother's little cheese grater.
She's had this since I was a little girl.
She used to let me grate cheese for her 
and I can't tell you how many times I grated my tiny knuckles right along with the cheese.
Sounds pretty gross, huh? :)

Then I gathered my pins - my rolling pins.
The little green handled one belonged to my grandmother who passed away when I was three so I know it's very olden.

So I've gathered these little treasures to set up this kitchen vignette for my kitchen corner.
Loving the olden things so much.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

We Gather Together

We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;
He chastens and hastens His will to make known.
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.
Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

We all do extol Thee, Thou Leader triumphant,
And pray that Thou still our Defender will be.
Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy Name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
