Grandma loved simple things and nature. She and I liked a lot of the same colors and especially favored handmade things. Grandma made my sister and me lots of dresses when we were girls.
I remember many great family meals served on these plates. Grandma was a "from scratch" cook who made it look effortless. See the "twig" handle on the gravy boat? And the adorable apple salt and pepper shakers.
Sweet little cream and sugar dishes. I have six boxes full of Grandma's collected dishware. Some are much older than others but all are charmingly hand painted. I just love them. Miss you, Grandma!
