I don't claim any Irish, hey.... we were Scotch and we just dropped by Ireland on the way to America!
But my MIL is Irish
Beasley and Sullivan
When I married my husband I realized she collected Belleek and she had Waterford Crystal.
So I thought I would share this picture of her today, one of my favorites.
I don't remember what she said the occasion was but she was opening up her home for a house tour and she was displaying her Belleek.
but what amazes me is, how did she collect this and keep it intact raising 8 children!!? 6 of which were boys!
After my in laws moved to a Retirement Village she gave all her daughter in laws pieces.
When I graduated from High School my Grandmother's neighbor gave me my first piece of Belleek which was a vase, seen in the center of my collection here.
I was lucky to be given the pink shell Belleek pieces from my MIL collection
go great with my French St Patty's postcards I picked up in Paris a few years ago.
Think I will go call my MIL, wish her Happy St Patrick's Day, thank her for the Belleek and tell her how much I love her!
