has me pulling out dishes and sweet lovelies
that I've had for years and enjoying them more than ever!
These are my grandmother's dishes.
I polished my cupboardand washed all her dishes.
I spread out the lace and set the places.
I added some springtime candlesticks.
This sweet silver pedestal dish will hold something delicious.
I picked this up at an estate sale for $6.
The kids will be over tomorrow to celebrate a special day for my husband.

She's holding my sister's hand in this picture
about 42 years ago!
We lived next door
on the other side of her duplex.
She was (and still is) one of the sweetest women I know.
I spent many afternoons having tea with her.
Sometimes, I'd help her clean,
we would polish her dining room furniture
and I would wash all her pretty dishes and tea things.
On those days, she'd get the ice cream out and we'd have sundaes!
I was only 14 when she passed on and I was so heart broken.
When I got married, my mother gave me my grandmother's dishes.
I treasure them.
