evening kitchen window

i love how my window looks right now,
in the fading light.

all of these things are family treasures...
the crystal wineglasses were a wedding gift
to my parents {almost 50 years ago},
the sugar bowl belonged to my great-grandmother,
the spoons, too, i think,
and the upside-down silver candlestick
{one of a pair}
was also one of my parents' wedding gifts.
the agates & other stones,
i collected over many years
at agate beach (trinidad, california).

post edit:
please see my mom's comment below 
for a corrected list of my family heirlooms.

The wine glasses were a wedding gift to your grandparents-75 years ago. The sugar bowl belonged to my mother and the spoons belonged to your Dad's mother. What a beautiful way to display them! Do you have a special box to store window decor? Love, Mom
