I am participating in Tuesday’s Display Chain with Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings. This week’s challenge was to share a souvenir. A souvenir (French, for memory), memento or keepsake is an object a traveler brings home for the memories associated with it.
A few years ago our daughter’s family lived in England for three years while our son-in-law, who was in the Air Force, was stationed there. We were privileged to visit them there and experience a part of our world that we never would have seen otherwise. I had begun collecting black and white plates to display on our dining room wall and I was hoping to add a plate to the collection from England. Well, I was blessed to find two Spode plates at a little shop near their home. They are my favorite plates in the display.
Here is a photo of the display.
Here are my souvenir Spode plates from England.
Every time I look at my plates I am reminded of the wonderful time we had with our family in the incredible country of England.
Be sure to visit 1890 Gable House Musings and check out Misi’s display, along with the others who are participating in this week’s Tuesday Display Chain.
