JJ's mom offered his paternal Grandmother's China to me! I am so excited! We registered for some when we got engaged, but decided to un-register because we needed everyday housewares more than China. We also knew we'd be moving around and didn't want it to break. I always was a silver banded China girl, but this is just so pretty.
I asked her to bring one piece here this weekend so I could show my mom the pattern, and she brought the tea pot! I didn't even know it had a teapot! I love it!!! She's going to hold on to the rest for me until we get a house (and hopefully a China hutch), but I'm elated!
I also remembered that my Grandma gave me silver passed down to her, but it was in an old case, so I got a nice mahogany case and my mom said she'd polish the silver and put it in the new case for me so I'll have that when we get a house, too!
Is getting China and Silver a motivating factor for most people to get a house, or just me? :)
