Say "Hello" to Minky.
"Minky" is made out of an old mink stole that belonged to my dear MIL. One of my BIL's wife's took the mink and had it made into three teddy bears for each of the three DILs. She surprised us one Christmas with our beautiful teddies. Every time I look at it I think of my sweet MIL and my thoughtful BIL's wife. I am so lucky to be part of such a wonderful family.
I have such fond memories of the dishes here. The cranberry edged one and frosted pink one were my Mother's and she always used these on holidays and Sunday dinners. It had a smaller matching pink one that, unfortunately, I broke accidentally a few years ago.
My hubby and I eat in our dining room once a year - if we are lucky. My Mother made a fancy Sunday dinner EVERY Sunday and she worked outside the home! I don't know how she did it. And we dressed up! I remember putting on an apron to protect our "good" outfits when cleaning the kitchen up. LOL! How times have changed.
Please join our sweet host, Cindy, at My Romantic Home, (here) for more Show and Tell Friday.
And have yourself a lovely weekend.
