Favorite Things Friday...What is in a memory??
I'll admit when I was in school sometimes I would think of the life that I would create for myself when I got older and was completely on my own. Would my first home as an adult be modern, vintage, eclectic, shabby chic, rustic? What atmosphere was I going to create for myself? Once I finally got out on my own I still had hand me downs for awhile until I was able to save enough from my paychecks to buy myself a few things. Something that was very important to me was that I had enough china and dinnerware to entertain and have company. So I bought two full sets of china, one a practical ivory set as seen above, and another cheery polka dot set as well. I have to admit it actually gave me great joy when I had saved the money and was able to bring these dishes home with me, I actually felt like a grown up, not just a kid using her mom and dad's old things. So while I find my dishes beautiful in their own right, I always think of how I saved for them, and what it really meant to me once I got them, and that for me is why they will always be one of my favorite things.
