I may not have seen my mom's china much growing up...but this china, on the other hand, brings back a lot of memories. This is one of my great-grandmother's china sets. I never knew her...but I had 25 years with my grandmother and by then this china was her's and I remember it well.
It's now in the care of my mother...so I played with it during this current trip home.
I just adore it. Maybe not because of the roses or color...
but because of the memories that bring joy to my heart and even a tear to my eye.
I miss the grandmother who let us set her table with these beautiful pieces.
I don't even drink coffee or tea...but I would take these sweet cups in a heartbeat.
and the serving bowls and platters...I could totally use with all my white plates and green table decor.
every bit of it...I just love!
Unlike my mom's set...this one is more then complete. I think there is almost 12 full settings. and with the crocheted tablecloth....on my grandma's dining room furniture...well...it's like we are in north Seattle on a Sunday evening sitting down for dinner with 2 of my favorite people ever. Maybe that is what outdated and discontinued china is for...the best memories ever!
I'm linking this one to Tablescape Thursday too!
