A fun give away

Those of you that have been around me for any time know about my love for china & antique dishes of all types.  I acquired an wonderful new set, a place setting for 4 plus a few extra pieces.  We purchased it at an estate sale over Thanksgiving weekend.  I forgot all about this purchase until a few days ago when I stumbled across them in the back of my husbands truck.  They have been riding around in the camper since November. ( I know this is when we purchased them because my mom thought I was crazy going to an estate sale on crutches only 4 days after my knee surgery.)  I am blaming the lapse in memory on pain meds.
Last night I got to go through the box and thankfully nothing was broken. 
They are a beautiful white, with a light blue floral design, accented with silver trim.  Blue Whisper, made by Sheffield.

Not a high dollar set but very pretty. I think I may gift them to a certain young lady that I love dearly who is a newly wed. Then I can add to her set as I can afford to.

I have told you all of this to lead into the following. One of my favorite blogs is having a cool giveaway.  Please visit  and let them know you are visiting from Garner Girl.  This blog is about some of my favorite things, antiques linens, dishes and tablescapes.

I hope you all have a great day.


  1. Loree, thanks for posting my giveaway info on your blog! I welcome visits from all Garner Girl friends -- and count them as my own! Congrats on finding those dishes before anything got broken. Sounds like a very pretty set! Maybe you'll do a tablescape for Tablescape Thursday and post it so we all can see it???

  2. So happy I just found a photo of the pattern and inserted it into the original post.

  3. Obviously I found your blogsite...I've read all your posts to date. Welcome to the world of writing. You mentioned your grammar was poor; if you do a lot of reading it will improve given time. I'm 'wordy' and have always been so it comes fairly easy for me plus I was always the 'champion speller' and made straight A's in spelling...that help too.

    I know you're working on the weight...that's good and you called yourself a wimp way back there. It is so difficult to get going but it's much more than worth it.

    You're hairdo is most becoming...I love it.

    Keep on keeping on...
