The Grandmother Whose China Went to Laura

For those of you following the Keep or Pitch blog, you know that Laura now has the Haviland Limoges China that belonged to my grandmother, her great-grandmother. Charlotte Elizabeth Rowley married Judd DeWitt Van Sickle in 1908. Uncle John born 1910, my mother Marian 1912, and Uncle Robert 1914. Laura and James will be married in the fall of 2011, one hundred and three years later. I am putting up this post, just as Mother’s Day is coming to a close.

My sister suggested a photo of our grandmother
for today’s post.
I think it was a good one.

  3. I don’t know what it is about old pictures like that – I just LOVE them! Ruth, I think the resemblance is in the mouth. The blouse she had on is gorgeous! Love all that lace. I have my grandmother’s china and it looks much like that in the picture.

  4. So much beauty: people and objects!! I see Laura in Charlotte Rowley Van Sickle. Could you post the wonderful painting of Laura by James’s Mother next to this wounderful photo of CRVS???? Thanks also for showing the LImoges China and crystal. XOXO
