I finally got I just need an Italian family, LOL

I have always wanted something that has been passed down in my family from generation to generation.

My granny died a couple months ago. She had a china set (8 place setting) with the gold trim and floral design. It came from her mom. My dad went out to get it and gave it to me. Yay! They are beautiful. I will pass them down to my children.

Do you have something that is passed down that you will, in turn, pass down to yours?

  • Why do you need an Italian family? Just curious what that has to do with dishes.....

    I have all kinds of things that were my Moms, I just put them in a box and put them away. I don't have a huge China hutch to put them in so they have to be stored away.

  • I have my maternal grandmother's Shabbat candle sticks. They were her mother's and possibly her grandmother's.
    I also have maternal grandfather's mother's china set. Service for 12 for 3 courses, plus soup, salad, dessert and tea/coffee cups.

  • Jademom07! Come to my Mom's or my MIL's house on a Holiday for dinner! You'll pee your pants because it's hilarious then go home with a blazing headache because EVERYONE talks at the same time & LOUD!! Your China sounds pretty! Enjoy it! I have things from My Grandma that I cherish. I have a few decorative pieces. I love them too! :)
