Flashback Friday

For this Flashback Friday, I will be featuring my grandmother's fancy china. My mother told me this was my grandmother's good china. But for the life of me, I can never remember eating from any of this dinnerware. I vividly remember eating on my grandmother's Melamine dinnerware. She had a mismatched set with different colors. She had some mustard, brown, and pale green colors in her everyday dinnerware. And they were washed by hand after every meal. But I digress.

I received this china after my grandmother passed away. She battled rheumatoid arthritis the last 20 years of her life. My handsome husband and I were married on June 15, 1991. My grandmother passed away on June 19, 1991. It was horrible. I remember exactly were my husband and I were when he gave me the news. Yes, not the best honeymoon. For the longest time the china was in a box in the basement. But when I started decluttering my basement, I brought them up and displayed them on a shelve in our Secretary.
Here is a picture of my grandmother's china.
I have no background information on the china. I don't know if the china was a gift or she bought the china herself. I do know that I see this china everyday and I think of her everyday.

Here is a picture of a few of the pieces close up.

I love the pretty pink flower with the silver leaves and the silver around the edges of the pieces.

This is what is written on the back of the plates.

I use one of the dinner plates daily.

I can't think of anything profound to say, just that I miss my grandma dearly.

Everyone, thank you for reading
Have a blessed day!
