While I don't treasure many material things, there is one that I do treasure and that is my great-grandmothers pickle jar. When I first saw it I thought it was a sugar bowl because of the tongs. But my Mother said they used it for pickles.
I think it's gorgeous! I bet even more so if it was polished, but I'm terrified to break it so I haven't attempted it. What is your most treasured possession? Perhaps something with sentimental value?
