Thank You for my dishes.

Another piece of Dansk Concerto Allegro Blue went down tonight. My husband and I have wagered that perhaps not one piece will be left by the time the kids are grown. It was a wedding gift, nearly all of which was given to us by the late, great John E. Jaqua. So, it’s doubly sentimental.

Will my grown-up children catch a glimpse somewhere of our special Dansk and remember a warm, full table of family and love? I have no memories of a special tableware, because we had none that I recall, just a bit of this and that. I want my kids to have memories. They already know how I feel about our dishes, given my constant, “be careful, it was a wedding gift!” But I believe the less I say, the better. Just serve up good meals on the Allegro Blue, that’s all I need to do.

  1. Funnily enough, I just unearthed some china from our shop. I don’t know how it got in there, but I thought it was lost forever. It belonged to my deceased aunt, who cherished and protected it, so now I am not sure we will use it for everyday use, but I am so glad to have found it!

    That’s how i feel about my tea set, but it only comes out occasionally, so not as likely to get broken. It came home with me from Germany and the kids treat it with proper respect. :)
