As I mentioned on my last post that we auctioned my MILs china and household goods Friday night.
40 years ago, I would take hubbies younger sister shopping for gifts for her mom, my MIL and my mother, for Mothers day and we would go to the local china store. I think back then every town had a china shop, that sold Doultons, crystal and cups n saucers -all the good stuff. This one time she got a cup n saucer for her mom and I got a mathing one for mine. Didn't get myself one as we didn't have the money for me to be buying frivolous items in those days. (Had a baby to feed).
They are so pretty
I just love them, sitting here staring at the picture.
the first one is jade and naturally the other one is amethyst-Royal Doultons
the roses inside are so pretty too, would love a teapot in one of these designs. Not sure they made them -did they???
to have to close as Iam able to get the pictures on, but they are moving around on me, they have disappeared a couple of times, so still have a lot to learn and afraid I'm going to lose it all.
Before I go though, today hubby did the eulogy at an elderly friend/auction customers funeral (he does this a lot), after funeral we went back to church for tea and these are the dishes at this church-familiar to anyone??
In the town of Bowmanville, there are two United Churches-two blocks apart, they are both gorgeous, one a little more than the other, stained glass windows etc. We have friends in both and they both compete, (little vibes and talks about joining, but will be quite awhile yet). Well they both have these dishes, come on ladies, that is taking competition a little too far, what are the chances that they would both end up with the same??? Will make joining easier though won't it?
