We now clearly see a finish line...one marked with a floral banner
announcing that "a wedding is about a year away!" and the other stating a
career end date for both Dave and I (that one a tad further out, but still less
than 4 years).
So, we are getting all our ducks 🦆 in a row, with a "touch each room", organize
that, get our life in the best order possible in these months ahead. This has included
clearing out the barn, contracting for some inside work, making lists, and pulling
out the paint chips.
I have always followed this individual path...sometimes parallel to the road, sometimes right through the field. So, when we were married almost 40 years ago, we wanted to invest in a set of china, but knew ours would be anything but typical. We purchased our dishes, one plate at a time and use them as our everyday dishes. How fitting that we chose Noritake, "Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady", with country sketches and prose to match by Edith Holden.
I also have this thing for vintage blue bird dishes, somewhat rare to find. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon the third creamer to the right for a couple bucks at a thrift sale this past week.
