Like many women, I have been a romantic for years. When I began an amateur quest to gather various china dishes, I hardly anticipated how much love a set of plates could actually give to me.
As I collected, each set told a heartfelt story. Many of the women had raised their families on these treasured plates or received the china as a wedding gift from their mother. Even more beautiful were the men who had held on to the china long after their wives had passed; only to find that they no longer had that special someone to serve them. All were eager to see their beloved china come alive in the home and hearts of their new owner. These pieces of history spoke to me, and clearly deserved to be treasured and shared.
