Leaning Tower of Dishes
growing up, both of my grandmothers had matching china patterns.
and so, before my wedding i was given one piece of advice* – whatever you do, don’t register for china!
when my nani passed away, almost a year ago, one thing that required no debate was what would happen to her china – it would come to me (don’t worry, she had at least 7 different patterns in full sets, so everyone was left with more than enough. and this was a woman who had not had entertained in at least 30 years). about a month ago my grandma and papa (who, it should be noted, still party harder than most 20-somethings i know) decided it was time to live a bit more simply and moved into a retirement community (which sounds a lot like dorm life in college and i’m a bit jealous). with that move came the distribution of a lot of their treasures as there simply isn’t room in the new place. once again the china came to me.
thank goodness i followed the advice of these wise women and didn’t register for china – i clearly have more than enough to entertain the masses. the only question is…
who’s coming for passover?
*my nani actually shared many pieces of advice/opinions before i got married – including that i should always “arise” before my husband to make sure that my hair and skin were just so. these “treasures” are compiled in a book that she gave to my mom when she got engaged. next time i’m at my parents’ house i’ll dig it out to share a few of the highlights
