Napkins from an estate sale. Eight napkins and placemats in pristine condition!
These little gems are marked Handgemalt - handpainted and belonged to my maternal great-grandmother. I should really have polished the silver tops!
This leaf dish is from my husband's paternal grandmother, marked Stouffer China - Czechosolvakia. That country doesn't even exist anymore!
European sized dinner plates, which means they are smaller than American plates. These are Rosenthal - Selb made in Germany.
Three different candlesticks, two are gifts and the third with the gold band was purchased at TJ Maxx this past year.
The wine and sherbets are the same pattern, Libbey Rock Sharpe
A rosemary plant surrounded by giftwrap and placed in a crystal bowl serves as the floral centerpiece. The fragrance will compliment the pork tenderloin!
Gold flatware from International rounds out the setting.
Wool embroidery on wool background hand stitched by my mother. She rarely used this because my dad placed a car battery on it and stained it. She washed it and the wool felted, which "just ruined" it, so says Mom. But I love it and use just as it is.
Inspected by Inspector Regan, who gave his nod of approval. No climbing on the table this week! You think he's learned his lesson? Seriously, he has his nose in everything I do, ironing, washing dishes, cooking, hand sewing, machine sewing and computer work.
