what people are saying...
"It makes me smile and think of her every time I see it."
I never entertain so had no reason to use grandma's fancy china. It was just taking up space. I now use her teacups & saucers to store my jewelry. It makes me smile and think of her every time I see it.
"My oldest keeps the ring dish on her nightstand!"
My kids never wanted anything to do with all the fine bone china dishes I saved for them....let's just say they've now changed their tune! My oldest keeps a ring dish on her nighstand!
"My Go-to serving Piece"
"I loved the pattern but the dishes always felt too fancy to bring out for the small gatherings I hosted in my small apartment. Thanks to Ariel, my tiered tray has become my go-to serving piece."
