I am joining with all the gals over at Sugar Sugar http://leesiebella.typepad.com/ to do a show and tell. This week's show and tell is China, tablesettings, crystal. This gal always has the greatest ideas and pictures on her web site. Wait till you see all the beautiful pictures these ladies are putting up on their blogs. She has kindly made a master list of the ladies who are involved. Wow. Very lovely and very inspirational. I am posting this late Saturday night as I don't post on Sunday's. Enjoy!
The china is white Bavarian china that my husband's grandmother hand painted and fired in her kiln. She was an amazing china painter. Every grandchild has china painted by her. I chose pink roses and have never tired of them. My husband loves china, and has actually bought me two china hutches to hold all of our dishes. Keep in mind we both have large families and when we do holidays at our house we have 50-60 people. I don't have that much china, but I do have alot of dishes. With all the china loving (almost driven) relatives, you would never think of serving a holiday meal on paper plates. Oh my! I did that once early in our marriage, oh dear, you would have thought I committed the unpardonable sin!!! My husband's grandmother was horrified that she painted all this gorgeous china for us and I was using nice paper plates. So I gratefully wash these beautiful dishes and I don't complain!
Thank you for visiting me today! Blessings
