Pink Belleek

I am very blessed to have a wonderful Mother in law, who even though she has 8 children she treats me her daughter. A few years ago she and my father in law downsized from their home to a apartment. She has a very large collection of Belleek that she has bought over the years when they went on trips etc. She was kind enough to want me to have these pieces.

The pieces are so delicate with a sea shell design of pink.
I think the one tea cup is so unusual being the shape of a shell.



I will always treasure them because they came from someone I love very much and of course is responsible for raising my wonderful husband. Thanks Mom!

My grandmother used to go back to Ireland to see her family and bring back Belleck. It is a wonderful treasure to me too.

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. Your dishes are exquisite and how wonderful to have received them from your MIL.

I love the shell design and the way the pink fades into the cream color of the dish. Just exquisite. A beautiful gift to treasure for many years to come. An heirloom to pass down in the family.

Have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your Belleek pieces are beautiful! I was at an auction a few weeks ago and there was a large collection of Belleek. I never knew how very expensive it is. What a wonderful MIL you have.
Hugs,

I just discovered your blog this morning and what a great find it is! I live in Florida now but I'm originally from Alton, IL and also lived in Charleston when I was attending EIU. Keeping up with your blog will be a little touch of home!
