Some of my favorite Family heirlooms

My Mom gave me this adorable set of china, with colorful dots and flowers, china from Germany, I also have a matching Pitcher. The other set next to it is gold trimmed floral china. Both sets are antiques.

I love family heirlooms that have meaning and I can pass down to my oldest daughter. I can remember seeing my Mom lovingly display these in her built-in hutch.  They were her pride and joy. I now display them in my hutch.
This other set of china isn't a complete set, it is gold trimmed with flowers in the middle.

This was another favorite china set my Mother enjoyed. I was glad to inherit this set as well and I treasure them, Both sets are now heirlooms I will pass down to my oldest daughter, I know she will cherish them as I do. She too has a sense of family and heirlooms, the importance of them.

Thanks to, and linking to: for sharing her family heirlooms!!


  1. Hi, friend! You've got a lot of informative & creative posts so why
    not show them off at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? My co-host
    this week is Tammy from Amber from Lucky Lees To Be.

    This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our
    creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent
    bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
    It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and
    increase your followers in the process.

    All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to
    share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes,
    poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can
    make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then
    follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first
    with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them
    that you're doing so.

    You’re not required to include the party button – you read that right
    – not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined
    to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
    do so :)

    See you at
