The story behind the cups
Grannies Love Cups
Grannie Bloomer, my Mothers Mother died in 1964. She lived in Edgeworthstown in a thatched cottage on a small farm. They did not have much. One of her prized possessions was a set of measuring cups that she brought from her parents’ home in Ballinalee when she married my Granddad and moved to his family home.
They were kept on display on the dresser in the kitchen seldom used and much admired.
She, as a great favour, would let me play cooking with them when as a child I stayed with her on summer holidays.
The set I have entered in the competition were made to commemorate her death fifty years ago.
I do not know what happened to the originals, but these, every time I look at them, remind me of my Grannie and how kind she was to me.
Thanks to Colum Murphy for providing a photo of another hat for last months Owl.
This wise fellow has just graduated!
