A field of Roses

From this..............

to this..............................

I found this container of china at my local thrift store today.  I could not wait to bring it home and set a pretty table.
W. H. Grindley & Co Pink Roses (Conway pattern)







 I have featured my tea set before.  They were painted by my late mother in love.



 27 pieces including two serving pieces.


Yes, this china took my breath away.  I would be delighted to serve tea or lunch on these beautiful dishes.  

Won't you join me??

I would enjoy coming to lunch or tea and enjoying using this gorgeous china. The same feelings are part of my shopping in thrift or antique stores and finding wonderful set of dishes. You certainly were fortunate to bring home this lovely set by Grindley with the petite roses. Have fun using your new china!
