I couldn’t let it go . . . go to the great land of Replacements that is.
It was headed to Replacements land if the beautiful Pre World War II Noritake blue and white china
that belonged to Martha’s hubby’s mother did not sell at the moving sale.
It did not sell . . . and that china pulled at my heart strings.
Was it because I knew I could give it a good home. Yes indeed!
I had obtained the covered vegetable dish previously, but not the entire set.
But those heart strings tugged and tugged.
I can hear a sweet sound coming from the sugar bowl.
Singing the song of a graceful and classic sound . . . just like the pattern . . .
graceful and classic.
The casual vintage ironstone welcomed the fine china to the family.
In addition to the china adding such grace and beauty to the hutch,
it added the wonderful color blue.
This bowl is a “keep it in the family” piece.
I am happy that I can welcome the beautiful antique china into the family.
Where it has truly enchanced the hutch.
And also the room!
I hope that Bill’s mom approves of her beautiful china’s new home.
I love knowing the history of old treasured things, as when you don’t,
you always wonder about where it came from, who loved it, the stories it could tell
as that family sat around the dinner table, as we would,
sharing their day of highs and lows, of counting their blessings.
Have a beautiful day, enjoying the first week of Spring.
