Successful Sharing

Many of you know that I have been working for several years purging and passing things on to family, friends and making donations.
The cabinets you see here are 2 of 4 that we had in one of the bedrooms. When my granddaughter Heidi and her DH Nate bought their first house I offered them the cabinets. They originally came from Porters in Racine. They were happy to get them. These two are in their dining room in their 1924 house. The other two are in their office.
I also gave them the Pickard china which is the same age as I am. I acquired it in the last 10 years. I really didn’t use it and Heidi loved it so I gave it to her. She picked it up Sunday and just sent me this picture with it arranged in the lighted cabinet.
She still could use a few more serving pieces and I will continue searching for them for her.
I am so glad she appreciates this. The pattern is called Hemlock Syncron and is very Oriental in silver, gray, black and red….very striking and tasteful.

How sweet to know that Heide will use and cherish the china.
I can see a beautifully pieced red table runner to highlight the splash of color in the pattern.

I'm sure she will cherish the cabinets and especially the china. Heidi has them displayed so nicely.

Beautiful pattern and it’s so nice to hear of young folks appreciating the treasures we own…..and even considering embracing the idea of owning/using real china!
