I've been wanting to participate in the Show and Tell Sunday
for awhile now-
here is something
near and dear to my heart!
My Rose dishes!

This is my first set of rose china
handpainted for me by my dear Grammy
for my 6th birthday

I think it all started here...

These are just a few of my favorites
Most I have displayed in cabinets
my husband built for me
On my *to do* list for the summer is to rearrange them-
I'm going for a more relaxed style

I just love off-white dishes-
they can go with anything and
so simply elegant!

Pretty rose dishes. I hope you'll post photos of your more casual arrangement, too. It's fun to see makeovers.

Love your roses, but I'm a white girl. Love ironstone most of all.

What a special gift from your grandmother. I would just adore to have one like that! Thanks for sharing your pretties.

Hi, I love your dishes! What a beautiful display you have. I especially love the crocheted lace or lace embellishment you have added. It really brings out the beauty of the whole display. My husband's grandmother also painted our rose china. It is lovely. Aren't you so appreciative of those dishes? Wow. Have a blessed Memorial day! Debbie

Dear Rene',

I am so glad you participated in Show and Tell Sunday so I could see all your pretty rose dishes! You have a beautiful collection! I, too, love to collect rose dishes, and I enjoy displaying them and using them.

I know you treasure the beautiful dishes your grandmother so lovingly painted for you!

The white lace trim is a perfect touch to your pretty dishes!
