I was sitting at my kitchen table this morning and had an idea...I need a creative way to showcase my latest tatting creations. The lighting was really nice; it was around 7:00am so there was almost a freshness in it. As I looked around for ideas and glanced to my left to see our china cabinet and BINGO!!
There are some really lovely stories about this china set. It's my great-aunt Dorothy's Arzberg china. Her husband, Edward, was serving over seas during World War II and had it shipped in a wooden crate to her while he was away. It's been in our family ever since. My mom took care of 'Aunt Dodie' up until she was settled in a home. It was there that she passed away at 96, but she gave her china to us. There is something to the white, simplicity of it that I absolutely love. My family and I use it for special occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and when we have guests over. I'll have to ask my mom if I could inherit it someday, but for now I'll just enjoy it and cover it in tatted pieces!!!
