Of Vintage Treasures....and Test Products
On a thrifting afternoon...I saw a vintage cake-carrier. In that brief moment between spying it and getting to it, something happened. Memories flooded my mind. My grandmother's frozen coconut cake, made especially for church "on-the-grounds" picnics and dinners. When we saw that silver carrier, it meant that we were going to have an opportunity to eat her famous cake...with ice cream layered in it, and fresh strawberries frozen right along on top. I could see it...and almost taste it...the coldness of it hurting my teeth (just a little) I picked that carrier up and set it in my cart. I felt a little piece of my grandmother inside of me. And truly all of us are made up of little pieces of our ancestry. Lives woven together over the decades and generations. It's a beautiful thing. And so, I give you a picture of my treasure.
