I am still putting my dining room back together from Christmas.
Yes it is true, I have been lazy and busy with the water main break issues.
I had said previously that I want to "shop my home" this year, to change things around and make them feel new again.
As I was getting ready to change this out....back to the way I have had it for a very long time....
This is above my Grandmother's buffet.
Here is my Christmas plates I put out.
Now this is what I usually have up
Rose plates I had bought a store in my home town.
Pink rose plates...but maybe I am ready for a change?
Do you like this better?
I have beautiful vintage plates so I thought...why not use them?!
This is one of Grandma's plates
This plate is special to me.
My Mom always had it, and when I was little I thought how pretty it was.
I can remember that I always wanted to eat my lunch on it.
Mom let me ...and I remember eating tuna fish off of it.
Silly how are memories are, but it is one I cherish.
This a Limoges plate, my Mom got on one of our
antique shopping trips and she had it hanging in her kitchen.
This plate was always in Grandma's hutch.
She belonged to the Eastern Star and on the back it says in her writing,
"Mrs Cather wedding presents. Neoga Chapter"
I assume Mrs. Cather gave it to my Grandma as a present.
Something so special as a wedding gift that she passed on to my Grandma.
I think I like the change. More subtle colors and each one
holds a special memory.
Change can be good. Now my tuna fish plate is not longer
put away on a shelf, but now I can look at it everyday and smile.
