Heirloom Friday

Happy Friday! Today I'm joining Marie at Emma Calls Me Mama for her first ever Heirloom Party. Marie's blog is new to me and I'm so excited to find her.

Let me share a few heirlooms with you.

This china cabinet belonged to my husband's Mama Rose. It means alot to my husband to have it in our home and I just love it too. It's not too big - just right to turn caddy corner in the dining room.

Oh look what's hanging there. It's not an heirloom but it is a favorite of mine. This proud little rooster is one of Nancy's tassels. Visit Nancy at Southern Lady to see her pretty creations.

Peeking inside the china cabinet is a set of Mama Rose's china. This gorgeous pattern is a soft robin's egg blue with flowers. It says Raynaud & Co. Limoges France on the bottom with no pattern name mentioned. I've never found more of it. Some day I'd like to paint a room this color.



Also inside the cabinet is a tea set that came to me from my Aunt Doris. Aunt Doris loved to entertain and had many beautiful things. There are several pieces that go with this. Some day we will all have tea together and I will show you more of these pieces. The bottom of this says "Dorset" Royal Winton. It's just gorgeous and means the world to me!
Thanks for coming by today. Please be sure to visit Marie to see other heirlooms and special things.

Hello Stacey - thank you for joining the party! I love your heirlooms! That china cabinet is gorgeous. I really like the scroll-y design on the front door. The rooster is so cute! And wow do I love Mama Rose's china! I have never seen that shade of blue on china before. So pretty. Aunt Doris' (I have an Aunt Doris too!) tea set is beautiful. The pink floral pattern is fabulous.

Blessings,
Marie

Oh, your treasures for this blogging party are lovely. I have been browsing your blog and it is lovely too. I giggled at the photo of your son holding that turtle. If only we could keep each version of our children. So glad to meet you. I took home your song Kisses and Cake to add to my playlist. Thank you for the inspiration.
