Romantic Homes Feature

Congratulations to my grandmother, Celestina Marie on her gorgeous BLUE WILLOW DISHES that I love and keep in my care, which are featured in the February 2012 issue of Romantic Homes Magazine. I am so happy that her lifelong collection is pictured on the pages of one of my favorite magazines.

If you are a follower of my blog you know the many stories I have shared about these keepsakes plates and accessories that I hold dear to my heart handed down to me through my grandma and mother who have since passed on. From childhood memories of holidays, birthdays and family gatherings, Blue Willow has been apart of my life forever. Imagine how happy I was to have the opportunity to share a few pics of my display in the Feb. issue and a few more here of the vintage hutch they live within.
Nana would be happy that I have taken good care of her keepsakes and these very old and loved plates made a little place in history.

Where the photos were taken in my vintage hutch, full view and one of the very old cups and saucer with an inside cup design.

The article points out history information and ways to display these treasures.

I hope you have the opportunity to pick up this Romantic Homes issue and enjoy the beauty of the vintage treasures this issue has to offer. The editor,
Jacqueline de Montravel, writes a beautiful opening letter titled Past Performance~

Till next Time~
Creative Dreams, Celestina Marie
