Time Travelling Trough Old Gifts

Hey friends ,hope and pray that all  is going fine and smooth in your lovely worlds .Cup of life is filled with the hot tea of business and we all are sipping so quickly.Time seems like a huge Black Hole which is  sucking the each past moment very fast and all that is left in the empty basket of heart is just a clanking coins  of memories.

Today i am sharing with you some of my old gifts which were given to me on my wedding in 1991.As you know i belong to a village and in my village the parents of a daughter start preparing for her marriage from her birth.In those days girls were not allow to go to school and since their childhood they were trained to prepare their bed sheets  table and chair covers and so many other clothing stuff with embroidery, making different kinds of designs and pics of flowers and birds with colorful threads on sheets.

Whatever my dear mother gave me is still most precious to me as in the making of that stuff her love took the shape of hard work as to be honest i was quite a tom boy girl who never took any interest in such delicate artistic jobs.

This picture was taken before my birth ,these are my parents and two elder brothers ,on the right is eldest one who is eight years elder then me and lives in the same village with his six kids and wife , on the left was four years elder then me ,he died withT.B when he was only thirteen years old.He was as intelligent and full of life that he completed his studies till five grade while being hospitalized.




My corner study table where i usually spent my time with my diary and cup of tea ,This cup belongs to tea set which  was gift of my wedding from my mom.


This bed sheet prepared my mom with her amazing talent,there were three such sets including table and chair covers.




                             Beautiful peacock created by the beautiful hands of my  mom         


In one part of my kitchen  cupboard these are the old utensils given by mom to me as a gift of my wedding ,though time has reduced much of their shine still they to me a way of connection to mom 's memories  .



According to custom of that time gift giver tend to show their best wishes in the form of words of  prayers written on utensils 


Unfortunately most of crockery given by mom has broken,only few pieces are left. 


This doll belong to my brother who died and is more then forty years old.


This hand made crafty picture was given to me by one of my school friend Shaziya  on my wedding day.


                                    This old desk is also part of my beautiful memories 



This beautiful show piece gave our brother in law on our wedding day to express his best wishes for us.

Thank you dear friends for your kind visits and precious words ,have a joyful healthy and blessed week ahead.amen.

  3. How lovely to still have, use and enjoy some of the wedding gifts you received in 1991! Your mother's embroidery is very beautiful and reminds me of work that my mother and grandmother used to do. Sorry to hear about your brother. TB was/is a terrible disease. I had one aunt who died from it and two others who each lost a lung.

    1. Thank you Jo for praising my mom she really was a woman with beauty ,brain and heart of gold ,

      i have so many foggy memories about my brother ,did not see such curious ,active and intelligent child who was mature enough to continue his studies while suffering with unbearable pain of Bones T.B ,he was just a child but now i realize that he knew that he has less time so he tried to do so many things in his short life ,he made all by himself two four wheeler wood carts in which he used to carry us for play,when we both sisters sit in them he used to push carts and due to amazing fixed small steel wheels carts run for quite long ,these memories are best part of my life

  21. Beautiful memories. I have some of the glass things my mother gave me when I moved out on my own. When my mom passed away 5 years ago I inherited all of her pictures and some of her knick knacks. I'm very sorry for the loss of your brother.
