FIREKING FINDS , BELLEEK BEAUTIES, LOVELY LIMOGES

Ruth, Tom and I
hit it hard yesterday.
We got a HUGE china cabinet
emptied AND the dish part
of her kitchen cupboards emptied.
Oh!  What treasures we found!
Love FireKing, do you?
You should SEE!!!
Okay- You CAN see-
Sigh!
Love that FireKing!
FireKing not your thing?
Like my rhyme there?
A rhyme everytime

Do you like to SEEK Belleek
(there's that darn rhyme thing again)
with the shell pattern?
How about a BOX of it?
All green label for those of you
that know about Belleek.
And let's not forget the 
 Haviland Limoges.
Nothing really rhymes with Limoges-
darn and I had a thing going there-
oh-wait- Limoges- Rose-but how do 
I work that in?
Oh- yeah-One Limoges Rose plate
But this?
Service for 12+ extras

 Now- If you are very good
and promise not to make mud pies
using your good china
tomorrow I will show you
Christmas in July.
And I am the lucky recipient!
Yes. I. Am!

ps.  I probably should tell you that
Ruth used to have an 
Antique Store.
Now you know WHY she has so
many beautiful things.

  3. Diana, I know fireking, a bit...but not the other brand you named. but oh that big set of china, wow !! When I was young I dreamed of a set like that. But hey, I was just as excited when I got my first set of melmac.:):) Hope Ruth isn't broken hearted about having to part with things. I have had two beautiful women in my life as true friends and they were both named Ruth..hug your Ruth for me. xoxo,Susie

  7. Hi girlfriend, The Beleek is calling me! I have two pieces straight from Ireland and would love more. I saw a bowl recently but it had Shamrocks-which is perfect but also Sunflowers. Although I also like sunflowers, they just don't go with Shamrocks.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs, Noreen

  18. What a beautiful china set! I have some of my grandmother's china but I also have the set I bought myself back in the day of singleness. It is surprising that through the years, I only seemed to get it out for holidays.

  33. Ye gads.....what pretty things you have unearthed. I'm trying to get rid of mine......could I send it all to you! LOL LOL

    I'm telling you downsizing is the pits...especially when you have collected so much stuff over 66 years.

  37. I know doing that sort of thing is work, but it must also feel a bit like working in a candy store - her things are all "luscious"! I don't know brands and such, but I do know what I like, and I see LOTS of things I like...You are a great friend to help in such a BIG project. I've been reading through some of your past posts, as I'm behind on visiting my blog friends. Your sweet "boy" is really growing and a real Cutie Pie, even when he is sick!

  38. Di, just ship it all to my house, don't even bother with the auction.
