Honey, bee sweet

Grandma's honey bee, who used to live on the top of her refrigerator. He lives on top of mine now along with my other honey bee paraphernalia ~ honey pots and a hand~embroidered bread cloth from my mom; and little bee tea candles from my mom~in~law. I love bees. Ok...I love everything; especially trinkets from the lovely women in my life.

Hi Anne Marie, yes I think it's for honey. It even has the little notch in the lid for the spoon, although I'm not sure where that might be. I don't use it for anything but looking at now ~ too old! =)

Thanks Mommy, we need to get a swarm for our hive, don't you think?

Oh, and I have been trying to remember what the name of the little white flower is a few posts back, to no avail. It's a tiny bulb, not a crocus. Lady Farmer will probably have the answer...

Love the hive honey pots - so cute! Are they vintage as well?

Michele said...

No, not vintage...yet! It seems that so many of my things are suddenly becoming vintage or collectable! I guess that happens when you reach a certain age...=}
