Grandma's Rose Chintz and Pink Glass

Happy Pink Saturday dear blog friends!  My little breakfast nook china cabinet has been gathering dust for months now and I just decided that today was the day!  And what better day to share my Grandma's rose chintz dishes and Great Grandma Edith's pink depression glass with you then Pink Saturday!  After taking everything out and dusting it off, I added some pretty vintage crocheted trim to the shelf edge and tucked some of my favorite vintage photos of Grandma and Grandpa in here and there. 

The rose chintz dishes were my father's mother's.  She treasured them and when she passed away they went to my mom.  The pink depression pieces were my mom's grandmother's.  She collected both pink and green glass.  When she passed the pink glass was given to my mom and the green to my great aunt.  When I was married and settled into my own home, (and started collecting pink), my mom was generous enough to entrust both collections into my care!  I treasure them and love how even though they come from opposite sides of my family, they display so sweetly together!  I miss both my grandma and great grandma and feel like this is a nice tribute to them.  I know they would be happy to know that the pieces they so lovingly collected are being enjoyed and well cared for. 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you've enjoyed your visit!  I look forward to seeing what you've been up to this week!  Please visit dear Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for the Pink Saturday Party!  For the love of pink!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
