What a nice present! One of my favorite events is on my birthday. Another year has gone by and except for the “bad” hip, it has been another wonderful year. Much of its success has been due to blogging. I have met some wonderful people and seen some amazing photographs and read some beautiful and funny writing. I have learned so much from studying all your blogs. Who said grandmothers don’t know much about computers????
Now, speaking of grandmothers and birthdays…… I talk about my Gram Potter a lot but I also had a Gram Lane. My parents, as they downsized, starting giving me some of the family treasures that they knew I treasured (coveted). The treasures were stored in the back of dark closets. I wanted to display them in my china cupboard. So for one of my birthdays I received Gram Lane’s cocoa set which I believe was one of her wedding presents.
I love the handle on the pot and the shape of the little bowl. I am not sure what the bowl is for – maybe extra whipped cream! The linens underneath the tray were embroidered by Gram Potter and she made the lace as well. I feel so fortunate to have a trunk full of her crocheted and embroidered linens.
I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. Pleas stop by and see all the Pinks.
Happy Pink Saturday!
