I was so happy when my mother gave me Aunt Myrtle's corner hutch and thrilled beyond measure when she gave me Granny's dishes! My momma says that grandaddy purchased these dishes from a jewelry store and she was just a little girl when she remembers grandaddy bringing them home to Granny. I love having family pieces in my home, they bring back memories of special people and wonderful days gone by.
This cabinet is the perfect place for them. I am glad that this cupboard has glass on all sides and especially like that the cabinet lighting shines through each glass shelf to shine on all of Granny's dishes.
This china was my Granny's best. I have many wonderful memories of my grandparents and visiting them was one of my fondest childhood memories that I will always cherish. When the family would gather for meals in their little house, some would sit at the dining room table, some at the kitchen table and a few used trays in the living room. We shared some amazing meals on Granny's best. We never thought her home was too small or too cramped. Those days we realized how thankful we were to have a home and cherished the time we had with family. The size of home nor the furnishings were our concern, it was the blessing of having each other. So often I find myself pondering those times, they were so special. Granny's cooking, served on her pretty dishes, and all of the family together in her little home...it was absolutely PERFECT! Priceless!
My granny was so sweet, humble and my could she cook! What was my favorite dish you ask, well dessert of course! Granny's banana pudding was my favorite and it was yummy! She made it from scratch and it was cooked, no box pudding here. Once when asking for another serving of her banana puddin' I mistakenly asked for more puddin' pie. She got the biggest giggle out of that and it stuck. She would always smile when speaking about how I loved her puddin' pie! I sure do miss her.
My grandparents were amazingly sweet and I miss them more than words could ever express.
I feel so blessed to have been given Granny's dishes, thanks so much momma, I will treasure them all of my days!
