If I was a good blogger, instead of sitting here publishing three posts in one night, I would write them all, and then schedule them to appear on different days. Oh well, what you see is what you get. Sometimes I feel like writing; other times I don't.
In case you didn't know, its no fun when loved ones die. Also, in case you didn't know, its going to happen to all of us. There are only two good things about it, that I can think of: 1) they get to go to heaven and 2) we get their stuff.
On Easter I used some of my mom's stuff--stuff she got from my grandmother. Isn't the china pretty? I looked up the pattern and it is called Eggshell Nautilus. It was from the 1950's and was what they called "transfer ware". From what I could tell, those flowers and fancy (and well-attached) stickers (as opposed to a painted-on decoration as was common for china at that time). The dinner plates are nice, but I really like the salad plates, which are square, and have scalloped edges. It's funny, this stuff really looks used. My twenty year old wedding china looks brand new.
