Vintage Memories

Hi Everyone
Happy Saturday

This is the sweetest 
vintage sugar and creamer

the hand painted roses
I found the set at a thrift store years ago
When I got home I found a small note and some brown leaves
inside the sugar bowl
The note says..

Johnny and Jenny had a walk by the lake
He left for service a few hours later

I do not know who the people are
or what happened but I have saved the
note and the leaves just the way I found them
A Memory Saved for all time
