Remember When ~ Mama's Candy Dish

This  candy dish is sitting on my "listed" shelves and I got to looking at it and thinking about the memories it brings back.

My mother had one just like it -- when I found it at a garage sale, I just knew I had to have it! It belonged to the "garage sale lady's" mother too and we reminisced a bit about our moms.

It was always on the coffee table filled with different candies. I had to be very careful when taking the top off -- I didn't want to drop it! I remember that I would always line up the scallops so that they fit together perfectly -- even at an early age I couldn't stand for something to be out of line. I've had to work very hard on not having everything perfectly symmetrical in my life!

Have you ever run across something that brings back special memories? Leave a comment and let me know!
