I have several dishes that belonged to my grandmother. I chose these today, both, because they are pretty, and because the cabinet in which they are stored came from dh's grandmother. These dishes were a gift from Nan when dh and I were first married and setting up our home. She dearly loved to cook and to celebrate almost any occasion with a family meal. She also loved anything that sparkled. I miss her and feel fortunate to have these keepsakes.
Have a great day!
