Day 23: Moss Rose

Day 23: Moss Rose is the pattern I often associate with my Grandmother, Rondi. She had a small set of tea cups and sugar/creamer set. When she passed away I received it and added to my collection of it over the years. Got to tell you...I loved my grandmother! She came to this country at 18 through Ellis Island by herself. The oldest of 18 children she ended up in Chicago. All the time I knew her she had a heavy, heavy Scandinavian accent. She referred to me as "Vendie" with a V and a singsong sound.
