I'm not sure how many of you know but we moved into my mothers house last year after she passed away. After living 33 years in my own home needless to say it was a long job. My mother grew up in the depression era and so had the mindset of "putting up for good" She and my Granny stock piled things that they never used for everyday. Gifts have been found still in wrapped boxes because they didn't want to use the pretties just on themselves. My Momma went to a great expense before she married my Daddy to buy a set of china and real silverware from what they called 'drummers" back then. Sadly she never ate off of those dishes nor the silver before she passed. About 15 years ago one of my Mommas friends went to Mexico and brought Momma back this tea set...or maybe its a coffee set...I'm not sure of its purpose...I only know it was found today ..in a box she had put back for good. I knew it existed but after all these years have not given it a thought. The poor little thing begged to be released from its paper wrappings and put out to show...so here it is...it now lives on the buffet (at least til Christmas and it has to go back for the village) There are no markings on it and I'm sure my family will never use it but its out and shining for "good" Have a wonderful weekend...big hugs to you all!
