Summertime Limoges


My mosaic this week is looking back on this summer when I did a tablescape with my antique Limoges china. Thanks to Mary at "Little Red House", we get to play with our photos and be artistic!! : )) Visit all the participant's of Mosaic Monday. There's a list on Mary's blog.
This china was my great grandmother's. The sad thing about it is that I have no children that appreciate or want it passed down to them. I'm hoping as they get older they will start to appreciate things like this more!!

  1. This is artistic and so lovely. I'd love to join you for tea! I also wonder when and if our kids will start showing interest in our heirlooms. Meanwhile, that rose is stunning!

  14. OMG! May I be your 'child', chuckle! That is exquisite.

    I am/went thru this with mine, also ... tears, sniff! The one that I give things to she doesn't take care of & I get so upset seeing it abused ... oy! Whatever happened to sentiment, treasures of family heirlooms ... it just isn't the same.

    Have a beautiful day ~
    Hugs, Marydon
