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.
