My dear husband, ( I don't know where he got the idea I love china?!) OK...heheheee...he sure knows! He surprised me with this beautiful set of china for 8, from THUN the Onion Pattern, made in the Czech Republic. It's absolutely gorgeous, I'm crazy about it, it's the pattern in blue and white and it's perfect because I don't have any in this colours in my collection, which is of 15 set of dishes with this new one.
The center piece is a MEISSEN, 2 tier compote I bought a few years ago at an auction, as you know, it has the Onion pattern too. I love using it with fruit like here and in the middle of an arrangement of flowers from the super market. The ceramic napkin rings, with the little butterfly on top, were made in my husband's ceramic factory he had for 30 years.
The crochet tablecloth is a real treasure, a jewel I would say, my MIL left my husband as it was made for her mother, my MIL would have been 90, so the tablecloth must be an antique by now.....it's in perfect conditions, I just washed it by hand so you can see it in my table scape today.
Thank you all for your visits, I'm always thrilled when you do; as you know you're so very welcomed.
Thank you to our gracious hostesses for the great parties too.
I was so lucky my dear Mil left this hand crocheted, lovely White tablecloth, to him! I have a special love for crochet because mother and grandmother was both, very talented in this field.
|The napkin rings with butterflies were also made at our former Ceramic Factory.|
