Grandma's Dishes

Before I got married, I inherited my grandmother's china from Germany. My grandma was moving out of her big, beautiful house to go live with my aunt and had to get rid of a lot of beautiful things! Of course, all the McCullin's (including myself) were more than willing to take all of these wonderful things off her hands. I was very excited to receive her favorite dishes. They have been in storage at the Iles' house for five years (I know - I'm a terrible daughter-in-law) and we went and picked them up this weekend. I couldn't believe HOW MUCH it was!! I was heart-broken knowing that I'd just have to get rid of it because there was no way I could fit all of this in my kitchen.

But, the more I unpacked, the more determined I was to keep it. And, it all fit!! I can't wait to have a big, nice dinner on my grandmother's china!

The whole set, including glasses and matching pots!

6 different size plates - 12 of each!

Salad bowls and serving ware, including pots and pans - I didn't keep those.

Four different sized glasses - I was only able to keep 3 sizes.

Can you believe it all fit??
