Water pitcher

My Grandmother passed away, but I keep having dreams about her.  It would have been her birthday on Friday and naturally I was thinking about her.  I made this card with her in mind using an image from Doodle Pantry.  I actually have a vase similar to this with silk lilacs in it that is a remembrance of her since she had a large lilac tree in her yard.  My Grandmother also had a garage area with lots of  antiques so that is why I like this image; however, she did some cleaning years back and got rid of most of it not realizing the value of it.  As a child, she would let me play with these items, so they had sentimental value to me so I wish I knew she was getting rid of them.
