See the platter on the end. It is a platter that belonged to my Great Aunt Maggie. She was my Grandpa's sister. I remember her having long plaited hair she coiled along the top of her head. I remember her soft spoken and very kind. Her chihuahua Princess Kay was called PK for short. Her husband's name was George. He was called Rip. I remember him as a big man with a big laugh.
I really like this piece. Somehow I ended up with the rest of Aunt Maggie's dishes after Grandma passed away.
These were obviously Aunt Maggie's everyday dishes as they are quite worn. They were in a box when I got them. I do not remember Grandma using them. As much as I love them, if Aunt Maggie's boys want them, I will be glad to let them have them.
I have them in my OKC Grandma's china cabinet in my foyer. Beside it is a little side table my OKC Grandpa made. I have my Grandma's wire rimmed glasses setting on the books and beside the books is a bell like Grandma rang when Sunday School classes were over.
I am blessed.
