As a little girl, I always loved playing with dishes. I think most little girls do. However, I don't think I have ever outgrown that particular pastime. I really like dishes still to this day. One of my sets that I particuarly enjoy are my "pink" dishes. They were a gift from my mother-in-law a number of years ago. She had received them from her mom who had obtained them as part of the furnishings in a house that they had purchased. My mom has helped a great deal in adding to my set by keeping an eye out for them at antique stores. They are hard to come by at a reasonable price, but we keep looking for them.
Recently I pulled them all out of the cupboard where they have been stored, washed them, and found a new spot for them where I can see them on a daily basis, and appreciate them more. I just couldn't resist taking a picture of them on my table before they found their new home.
