The Digit-al Dozen Does 2--China!

Hi Everyone!  Holy cow it's cold here!  Our temperatures dropped down into the 40's!  And were we prepared?  Heck no!  I stupidly wore sandals to work today!  Crazy town!  It's supposed to be cold and windy again tomorrow.  We might be straight into Fall after our short Summer.  But that's okay because our Falls are very beautiful and so short lived.

Today in our September Anniversary our theme is china as in fine china.  There have been a lot of china pattern nails done but I wanted to do something like the beautiful I grew up with of my .  My grandmother was an AMAZING cook.  Every Sunday after church we had fried chicken and the best mashed potatoes in the world.  Not only did she cook but she also baked!  She was a cake decorator for Lehman's bakery all the years I had her in my life. I had not only the most delicious Danish Layer cake's for my birthday but also the best decorated cakes!  I miss her.  She was very special to me.

One of my favorite memories of her was sitting around the table with all my family for Thanksgiving and eating off of the beautiful china.

My favorite thing was the gold rim around the plates and coffee cups.  Even the kids got coffee cups LOL!
Pretty white and gold china was underneath the mound of turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes and gravy.
When you were a kid and you got to eat off of the fine china you felt like a princess! Come to think of it whenever I was with my grandma I felt like a princess.

Check out what everyone else has done for their china pattern mani's!
