Everthing Gold Is New Again

Several years ago, one of my very stylish Aunts gifted me some of her vintage “gold ware”.   At the time, I had never seen anything like it.  Now that I find myself perusing the internet for Holiday table setting inspiration,  I’m wondering where I’ve stashed these pieces!  I really hope I can find them before Saturday…wish me luck!

    Sue I had to laugh a little inside, I do stuff like that all the time. I put something special away in a very safe place, in fact so safe that I can not even find it. I do it all the time. Good luck and I hope you find them. How fun to use an heirloom from your aunt, I am sure she will be thrilled!! Kathysue

  17. I was gifted a beautiful vintage set this year- I am looking forward to using it- although I am not sure when I will EVER use all 18 place settings- oy vey- I can't imagine doing a sit down for that many and no way I'm using these plates for a buffet.

No color anymore I want it painted GOLD! Sorry, had that song in my head ;). Hope you have a wonderful wonderful holiday! Just added you to my fav. blog roll, have been meaning to for awhile, but I am so new to all of this :).
