Sometimes I wish that I actually had a fancy-schmancy set of china, instead of a generic set from a box store.

This china was my Grandma Eleanore Bergman’s.  Her sisters, Elvy and Martha, bought it for her as a wedding present when she married my grandpa, Donald Sanchez.

Only a few pieces of it are left.  Most of it was broken over the years. (She had 5 kids and moved around a lot, so it was inevitable.)

The pattern is called “Cowslip” and it was made by a company called “Spode”.

I love the details in this pattern.  It’s colorful and happy.2014-11-24_0062

And I really like the basket weave texture and the scalloped edges.  Lots of little details.

My mom painted this pattern onto a cabinet when I was a kid.  It brings me happy memories.:)
