Gentle friends, I thought I'd show you a Christmas present I bought for myself........
..... I found this set of cream soup bowls and liners on the bay of evil - they were a super price and I just couldn't pass them up. At Replacements they are really expensive per set, so when I ran across them I had to have them. The pattern is called "Lace" and was made by Castleton China. This expands my mom's wedding china and although I inherited quite lot of it - for some reason there were never cream soup bowls to the set - and I knew I could use them..........
...... "Lace" was first introduced in 1954 so it was quite a new pattern in 1955 when my parents were married - they have a real 50's feel to them - IMHO - the combination cream china, grey base and pink and white Queen Anne's lace flowers with platinum banding look great on the table.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by.
