Teaset and China Cabinet
This is a tea set that Mom had for years. I always told her she had to leave it to me. So I got it, but frankly I would rather have Mom if she could Have been in good health. But God knows best and He took her Home. I seriously doubt china cabinets or tea sets are on her mind now. I googled the pattern but have not come across it yet. If anyone knows please let me know. As for the china cabinet to the left ~ I think everyone in the family had their name behind it. I did not put my name because I had no hopes of getting it. It seem to be the most~ what I would call ~sentimental piece of furniture in the house. Thanks to my brothers and sisters ~ it was passed on to me. I am so thankful to them. Everytime I look at it I get teary eyed. It makes me think of Dad first. He got this for Mother way before he passed away ~ which will be 21 years Christmas Day. Then I really think Mom enjoyed all of us telling her ~ well, maybe not everyone, but me telling her just where I would put it. I did not have a clue that I would ever get it. Then my siblings who so graciously gave up their claim to it. That china cabinet will always keep us together as a family. I can always look on the back and see their names. As for the other tea sets in the china cabinet ~ they were given to me over the years. I have put some of them on my blog. If you are wondering where I put the china cabinet ~ it is right where my brother and husband put it when they brought it to its new home. Katty-cornered in the living room. It matches my piano and furniture perfect so I just left it there. Just thought I would share that with you since it meant so much to me!
