Happy Pink Saturday! As always, our hostess is Beverly – please stop by and see a list of everyone participating.
This is a piece of my Great-Grandmother’s Haviland China. It is the only piece I have at present because the rest of the set is in storage at my friend’s house in Detroit. Yes, Detroit. When I moved away from Michigan to go to Graduate School, I couldn’t take the china with me. My sweet friend Jan has been holding onto it for years. I’ve only flown in and out of Michigan, but never have been able to transport all those dishes home. The set is in a big wooden box.
Next year, I will be back there for my…(unspecified year)… high school reunion. I plan on driving there and packing up my china, along with a few other things that Jan has been keeping for me. When I was younger, I appreciated that the Haviland was my Great-Grandmother’s and was being passed down to me, but I really didn’t care a whole lot for the pattern. Now, older and wiser, I really love it.
