Preparing to move house on May 28th has interfered with writing these posts. I have missed the discipline I acquired in April while participating in the #atozchallenge. Once belonging to my parents, there are so many beautiful things to carefully wrap. Madeline and Norman Forgue were interested in many things, but collecting porcelain they found in small antique shops in Chicago left me with precious pieces. I wonder what they would say about the photograph I have included in this ‘time out from packing’ post, which is not a Meissen figurine or Royal Worcester plate. It is nothing but a heavy, clunky, glass dish that is of no value with a divider down the middle. While growing up this dish once held stuffed celery, maybe deviled eggs, dill pickle slices or carrot sticks. Seventy years later I wrap this piece as carefully as china and silver. It was my mothers! I remember it on the table in the breakfast room where the three of us ate our everyday meals. Holding this dish in my hands is as precious to me as if I had found a priceless artifact in an archeological dig. My parents might wonder why I wouldn’t post a beautiful tea pot or plate, but those of you who fondly remember growing up….you understand!
