These beautiful dishes were hers.
They are Abalone China and the pattern is called Golden Grain. They stopped making
them the year I was born. I really can't find anything else about them. Ebay does have a set for sale and also a few pieces. It wouldn't surprise me to find out they were part of a giveaway. That would explain the odd amount of pieces she had. To me, they are worth gold!
I think the sugar bowl and creamer are so sweet. Too bad I don't have any cups and saucers.
I decided to add some of my carnival glass. I started collecting it when I found a plate just
like my mom had when we were growing up. The color seems to work well with the dishes.
My grandmother also made the lace I tucked into the napkins.
These glasses came from Goodwill.
The runner is actually a dresser scarf my grandmother made as a girl.
Her initials look just beautiful!
Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane!
I will be joining Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Be sure to visit my sister's blog at Robin Flies South...
Would love to have you as a follower! I will definitely reciprocate!
Next Wednesday, November 16th, my sister and I will be posting very special tablescapes. Even though we haven’t lived within a thousand miles of each other since our country’s bicentennial, the sister bond runs deep. On one visit, on the same day, we wore identical outfits. Our niece just had a baby and we purchased the exact same gift. It has always been a source of amusement for us. We knew it was bound to happen when we both started tablescaping, but we bought the same specialty appetizer plates. We thought it would be fun to use them the same week, make some guidelines to the colors allowed, and see what happens! So, be sure to join us next week for Tablescape Thursday!!!
