Buying Some China

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.

What a find! I know you'll set a beautiful table with your mom's pretty dishes. I, too, hit the Bay Of Evil and bought the china pattern my mom had as I was not able to inherit her pattern. It reminds me of her every time I use it.
