My Mother told me she cried for a year after Sissy died. They were best friends, and had a bond unlike no other. All of us, Sissy's nieces and nephews, and her sons, took a little of her with us--some more than others (wink), and we all miss her more than words can say.
I am using Sissy's wine glasses, salt and peppers, and candlesticks, which are now vintage Avon. As I pulled them out of the box, I could still smell the perfumed scent.
I used this white cloth with gold design that I found on sale at Home Goods a few weeks ago.
I found these plates at an antique store, they do not have any markings on them. I believe they are fairly new. I loved the cherub and I will use them for Christmas and for Valentine's.
Along with the Avon stems, I used my Lenox crystal (I think it's Lenox, not sure) with the gold rim.
The dinner plate is my Lenox Courtyard. It is ivory and has a gold rim, with a delicate swirly white design around the edges. The design is hard to see in the photographs...
Napkin rings are silver with a gold bow, and were purchased at Stein Mart years ago.
I used red roses and filled in with whatever I could find in the yard--sprayed gold.
I used my cherub bowl, and added table gems to the bottom for sparkle.
I love the painted faces on these little guys!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me! I always enjoy hearing from you!
