Aunts and Dishes and other Blessings...

My great aunt Mary (on the Berge side) and aunt Bernadine (on the King side) are good friends and like to go antiquing and treasure hunting/selling. They have all kinds of adventures together and find some pretty amazing things. Recently they came upon a beautiful set of china from an estate sale that they were in charge of organizing. It was all going to be sold for $50 and they called here wondering if someone would be interested in it.

So, long story short, I am now the owner of a 12-place setting of china! It has a delicate flower pattern and silver trim. The cups are sturdy but elegant. I am very blessed and I praise the Lord from Whom all blessings flow.

"Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!" ~Psalm 34:8

Looks like the pattern name is Floral Splendor. You can find some pricing on

It doesn't look like they have the coupe soup bowls in stock. But you can sign up to where they will notify you if they get any in.

Wow...thanks Matt. I looked and researched and just couldn't figure out what the pattern was. After I read that there are close to 30,000 patterns, I sort of gave up. I am grateful you didn't!
