Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Jadite Alice pattern

Surprise, surprise . . . I have gotten myself in a bit of a spot - you can read about it here.

But after a trip Friday to an albeit over-priced antique store, my collection of jadite has grown some. While not my . . .

#1 choice - Fire King jadite restaurant ware
(the thickest and heaviest of the Fire King jadite); or even my

#2 choice Fire King jadite Jane Ray pattern
(a thinner version of restaurant ware meant for home use); it is my

#3 choice Fire King jadite Alice pattern
(a frillier version of the Jane Ray pattern).

After searching the ENTIRE store twice, Brian spotted 8 Alice pattern saucers! I snatched them quicker than lightning and headed to the check-out with 2 minutes to spare before closing!

My heart is still beating fast just thinking about it.

Now I only need 8 matching dinner plates and 8 matching cups.

Oh, and the silver. . . and a pretty cloth tablecloth . . . and a few serving platters.

Details, details.

Love Me
