My very first tablescape posted on my blog, more than two years ago, featured my paternal grandmother's wedding china, which she gave to me before she died. The pattern is Admiral, by Heinrich H&C. There are 24 placesettings and many wonderful serving pieces, including TWO gravy boats. If this photo looks familiar, it's because I'm using in my blog header.
Thanksgiving, as I did last year. I always think of Grandma Rachel when I use her pretty china. Sadly, I don't have any dishes from my maternal grandmother. She had 21 grandchildren, and there just weren't enough to go around! I do remember her colorful Fiestaware and wish some of that had made its way into my cupboards.
an autumn table, but I've also used it to set a spring table.
favorite version so far:
pretty modern table with it at her house. Her Gorham Chantilly silver is also from Jean's collection, which was divided between my two children. It's fun to think that one day my granddaughter -- or maybe a great-granddaughter! -- will be the caretaker of this pretty china!
her blog after 7:00 p.m. this Wednesday to see lots of pretty dishes.
