Sorry, I couldn't resist hinting at the Gloria Swanson quote for my post title ;)
Have you seen Sunset Blvd.?
The other day when I posted my hutch, quite a few of you asked about the plates.
Well, they have been on great grandma's hutch since my mom had it in her home and I rarely ever saw her change them out. So when they were passed on to me along with the hutch, I put them right back where they have been most of my life.
Actually since 1979, to be exact.
You can just make them out in this picture of my last house as well.
They're Franklin mint and show the seasons.
January, February, March, April...
May, June, July, August...
September, October, November and December.
Although, they're probably not worth much monetarily, they're priceless to me.
Also up there are some little plates from my dad's mom and some cups and saucers.
Shhh... don't tell the others, but the one below is my favorite of the three ;)
They all live happily on the hutch with a couple tea sets from my great grandmother and a couple pieces of Ironstone :)
And that's where they will most likely reside for the rest of my life and hopefully after that.
I'm kind of a sentimental gal, if you haven't noticed ;)
