I remember years ago my mother had a china pattern that
she dearly loved. She bought the plates, cups, saucers, bowls and platters
piece by piece over several years.
This pattern is called Desert Rose by Franciscan. These dishes would be used at
family dinners or on special occasions.
I saw the photo for this on Morguefile or Paint My Photo
which are both websites that allow photos to be used copyright free.
I used to have the pitcher like this given to me
by my mom. Unfortunately, with all the moves we have
made over the years it was broken. But, because of a serendipitous posting
by a photographer I was treated to another
wonderful memory of times gone by.
