Fine China

Hello Everyone!

Do you remember your first set of fine china? No, I 'm not talking about as an adult, newly married! I'm talking about your very first set as a child!

As a little girl, my mama told me wonderful stories about her childhood. She told of amazing adventures she and her sisters had in their playhouse. Their playhouse was a "pretend" house under a grapevine arbor located in the backyard.

Her mama would let the girls have some of her old, broken dishes that would be "magically" transformed by their little girl imagination into the very finest china. They would have wonderful tea parties for their dolls, and sometimes, unexpected guests (cousins) would drop by, and of course, they were invited to Tea!

I treasure the stories Mama told me of her childhood! You may have some stories also. If you do, and haven't written them down, do so. I am sure they will be as magical to your children or grandchildren as well.

Be Encouraged!

That was so nice. My Mother started doing that with stories before she passed away. Thanks for the reminder I need to go back and look at them. And start my own. Hope you have a great day today. I'll add to my blog later if I can.
Love,
Lynn

What a nice encouragement about childhood stories. I enjoyed stories my mom used to tell me too.

What a sweet story! It's always fun to hear about how your parents and grandparents spent their time as children!

Lynn, MrsProverbs31, and Christi,

Thanks for coming over today. I've been under the weather for the last two days-a virus.

Please remember me in your prayers for a speedy recovery!

Plant Lady,
I wrote you a message and told you to get better and gave you some scriptures for healing and I thought it said it posted and now it it not hear. So Be Healed in Jesus' name and I'll pray the scriptures over you. Talk to you later.
Love,
Lynn
