Heirloom dishes

 Hi Everyone
Happy Saturday
Its so fun getting all the
silver, china and crystal ready for 

Most of the dishware we use
have been in our family 
for over 3 generations
like this little silver teapot 
and the set of silver coasters

  Grandmothers plates that I adore
the pattern , the gold rim and all of the tiny flowers

This is one of the serving plates

another serving plate 

 The stemware and the
  silver coasters

 Family heirlooms
the definition of an heirloom is
"a valued possession passed down in a family through generations" 
  So Grateful to be making new memories with these dishes too

This pretty pink plate
is dreamy

I am not sure what it was used for
any ideas?
We are on the Thanksgiving countdown
Family, Football, Food, Friends and Fun
linking for
Pink Saturday

romantic saying for today
"You will never know love unless you surrender to it"



  1. I adore the plates with the cobalt blue on the edges! Adorable dishes you have.

  2. Beautiful china! I think Thanksgiving is very joyful day! We haven't this one in Poland

  3. Hi Pam,
    Sorry to see favorite places on Cedros changing yesterday...sign (sigh) of the times...
    I believe that the last plate on your post here is a trivet plate used for a teapot or other hot vessel. I have one painted by my great grandmother.
    Aren't family treasures among the things that make your heart sing?
    Happy, healthy holidays to you and your family!

  4. Very nice things, and Chris is right the last photo is a trivet... used for hot things... It's gorgeous!

    Enjoy your Day~

  5. YAY one step closer to christmas!!! pretty pictures

  6. Hi Pam, all lovely pieces! I think that is a cake plate or stand. Something close to a display piece for sweets or maybe even cheese? That is my guess.

  7. Your last plate looks like a tea tile to set a hot teapot on. It appears to me to be German lustre. Does it have any marks on it? All your dishes are lovely! Sally

  8. Hello, Pam! I am enjoying all of your posts I have missed lately. I love this one. Your family heirlooms are stunning. Did you ever find out about the plate's purpose?

  9. So neat that your dishware has been passed down the family, that makes it all the more special!

  10. The silver coasters are the bomb! They are very unusual! I have never seen anything like them before.

  11. I think that the last plate may have beena cake plate. It and all of your dishes and serving pieces are beautiful! I love old pieces that have been passed down, especially ones that I remember seeing the relative I received them from use. Anything connected to my grandma, aunt and mother are so special to me! They're gone, but their special pieces are here to add beauty to my every day. Thank you for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  12. The silver is my all-time favorite.....I use it for any and all occasions. Looks like your Thanksgiving celebration is going to be very beautiful and very special.

    Smiles & Sunshine,


  13. Hi Pam,
    You have some beautiful pieces...family pieces are the BEST!!!


  14. Love the plate with the blue around the edges. Just lovely! Thanks for sharing. Hope your evening is grand! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  15. Your dishes are lovely. The ladies are correct, the last photo is for placing a hot teapot to protect the table surface. They are known as tea "tile", "trivet" or "stand".
