I'm back! And it's Show & Tell Friday...A treasured gift

Hi there all! It's been so long! To Long! Needless to say, life has been busy, busy, busy. I'm managing my time better but trying to get that blogging time into the schedule has been a challenge. I'm working on it though :0)
I decided to make my re-entry into Blogville via Show & Tell Friday, which is now hosted by the beautiful Cindy over at My Romantic Home. Be sure to pay her a visit and see who else is "showing and telling" today.

Not to long ago, I was gifted with these vintage pieces. My dad's significant other knows of my love of vintage and antique items. She was out and about at a yard sale about a week ago and came upon these beauties. I've done a bit of my own research on them and have discovered they were made by Taylor Smith Taylor and are pattern 1825. They were discontinued in either 1941 or 1942. I've all ready used them and I just have to say, food looks even better when served in antique/vintage china :0)
Oh! I wanted to add that these four items were bought for $0.25 each! SERIOUSLY!

The lid is just
slightly askew on this one.

Miss Maxine (or Nana Maxx as my youngest children call her) is one of those truly beautiful women whose beauty begins deep in her heart. This is a gift that is truly treasured. She is and has been such a blessing to my father and to our family. We love her so much.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I sure hope you'll let me know you were here. Have a Fabulous Friday!
