hosts a weekly "Show us your Life" series and this week it's china patterns. I did a post a while ago, so I won't go into the whole story again (cool as it is!), but my pattern is by Sango and it's called Florence. Complete service for 12 minus the smaller platter which I need to track down at some point!!! It's a very simple, classic and pretty pattern that I love. We USE it too!!!
In abbreviated form, we were at my IL's shortly after we were married and MIL was pulling out dishes for dinner (she has 3 or four china patterns!) and I stared at them until she asked what was wrong? I tapped a plate and said "this is my Mom's china pattern!" She said "what?" and I said "this is the same pattern my Mom has for china!" (My parents were married in NJ 40+ years ago, MIL had purchased these locally years later). And without hesitation my MIL said "then these are yours! Niki can have your Mom's (which she had laid claim to YEARS before, HA!) and these go to you". And a few months later, they did!
