No, I don't need help identifying the flowers.
I just wanted the first photo to be something pretty
for the eyes.
This is the bouquet Tim picked for me on his walk today. I didn't do any rearranging to them at all.
We just found a vase, filled it with water and plopped them in it.
Not bad for random picking!
But the flowers are definitely screaming Fall to me.
Would you agree?
Now, down to business.
This is what I need help with.
When we bought our home we inherited a china cabinet full of old dishes and crystal.
This set is especially pretty.
It has a thistle pattern etched on it, gold trimmed, and has a knobbed stem.
This is the best shot I could get of the pattern.
It was taken looking inside the glass out.
I am hoping someone else may have this pattern of crystal and can tell me the name and the maker.
I have spent hours searching, but have come up empty handed.
I know a lot of you ladies are great collectors of crystal and china!
There are also some odd and end dishes of these three sets.
The bowl is Johnson Bros Tulip Time.
The plate on the left is Somerset Excel and the one on the right is Royal Doulton Greenbrier.
I am going to sell all of these since I have too many dish sets already!
I wish I had something exciting to report, but it is has pretty hum-drum around here.
I'm just enjoying the last of those 'lazy-hazy' days of summer!
Are you already thinking about Fall?
