my cornish pixie ~ sacred Sunday


some things are just sacred. for no particular reason except for the memories that they bring back.. to tug at your heart.

my Pa, the one who is my connection to Cornwall.. use to call me 'his little pixie' , when I was a little girl. He also called me Miss Robyn... and that is where my blogging name comes from. I had forgotten completely of the pixie name until the other day when I was sorting through my childhood treasures and I came across my silver mug that was given to me by my Nanna and Pa when I was christened.. the one I drank my milk from when I was a baby, the one that is tarnished with age because I don't believe in polishing the silver. And I gasped as I remembered the little silver pixie that is on the front.... my little silver pixie mug - sacred to me, sacred to my inner child.

How neat is that! My favorite thing from my baby time is a spoon that has my date of birth and time engraved on it.

Hi Robyn, I love those special moments when you suddenly get transported back to a childhood moment, was the mug given to you by your Grandad?

How fitting that your granddad could see that you were truly a pixie from way back!
