Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is the gracious hostess of Pink Saturday. Be sure to pay her a visit.
Being that this is my very first "Pink Saturday", I wanted to pick something special, as well as near and dear to my heart. I've picked two things to share with you.
This is one of my vintage tablecloths. I love the print on the cloth and like to think about the stories it could share if it could only speak to me. This particular cloth was a birthday present from my eldest daughter and her special beau.This is part of my china tea set collection. I've only taken down a few pieces.
I've shared the story before, but I'll share it again (humor me). My mother used to have this china tea set. After three major earthquakes, hardly anything survived from the original set. When my mom passed, the remainder of the set was passed to me. I've been adding to the existing pieces and although I know it's not the "original" set that was Mom's, looking at the dainty cups & pot, reminds me of her and the times we would share. Imagine being eight years old, sitting at the dining room table, which we only did for special occasions, and sharing a moment with mom...She'd have tea and I'd have hot chocolate. I remember thinking how special I felt. Not only because I was sitting at the dining room table, but because I was sipping from the special china too. Thank you Mom. Thank you for that special moment and for giving me an everlasting memory.
