Well, it really was my lucky day a few weeks ago. Now that I am well known in the neighborhood as She Who Will Take Anything (which is fantastic!) I had a call from a dear neighbor. They are retiring and moving to California to live closer to their adorable grandson. Julie told me that she had a few boxes of her husband’s mother’s china set. She had no use for it, her daughter and daughter-in-law had passed on it, so she wanted to know if I was interested? I had no idea on the pattern or make but of course, I would take it! I drove by and they were in the midst of packing. She kindly gave me the boxes and I brought them home and put them in my garage.
I know ironstone is super hot right now and I agree it’s nice but I prefer gorgeous old bone china with a pattern – to each his own! I have a lot of old bone china plates that I have picked up here and there over the years. If it is super pretty, it typically comes home with me. I display a few on my dining room wall.
Oh, that coffee pot! Morgans Rose Bone China by Hammersley – I told you it was like Christmas morning!
