I enjoy old dishes -- especially those with blue, purple, pink, or yellow. This love of dishes came from my Mom, and perhaps my grandmothers as well. I remember all of their china closets -- Grandma K. had several sets of pretty china in her closet; Grandma S. had a light, milky blue set with square plates and saucers, and Mom had a beautiful blue and white set, part of which I now enjoy in my own china closet. The other day I was at a thrift store seeing if I could find a "treasure", and as I was paying for my 64 cent vase, I saw this beautiful child's tea set on the counter. I asked about it, of course, and waited -- hoping the price would be right. It was -- $2.99 for the set!! So here it is -- my moment of creativity -- bringing a smile to my face as it reminds me of the other women in my family who loved pretty dishes as much as I do.
