But then I decided to go through my dining room hutches and pulled out English china from my fraternal grandmother and some depression glass from my husband's mother, as well as, an amazing coffee set. I thought I'd share some of my husband's history today.
I have this photo hanging on my refrigerator door. It's a photograph from my husband's family sent to his father and mother during WWII. They had several relatives living in Poland during World War II. My father-in-law fought in the Pacific Campaign with the Black Cats. (My husband's parents were much older when they had him. They were closer to my grandparents' age than my parents'.) My son has all my late father-in-law's journals and pictures. He treasures them.
I found a similar image of Jaslo online: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/jaslo/images/jas077.jpg
My husband loves this Chase Brass and Copper Mfg. Coffee Set. There is a beautiful tray that goes to it as well.
I love when objects and photos tie into the historical past.
