38 this year


My birthday gift this year
I got earlier, washed and put away safely...
Mr. Husband and I found some vintage made in England
Christmas dishes...
*
Today is the beginning of my 38th year.
*
I am very aware that this is a happy 
time in my life, a joyful season; but I am also aware 
of the way that life has seasons...
*
And so I pray that God will fortify me for whatever is to come.
*
And for now, on this birth-day,
I seek to be thankful....

God grant you many years! I love the dishes, there's nothing like English dishware. I was blowing up the picture, trying to see the name of the pattern. I see it's Spode (excellent choice), what's the pattern?

Thanks everyone!!! I am having a great birthday!

Nancy ~ thanks. I just love them and can't wait to use them soon!!! They are the Christmas Tree pattern that Spode started in the 1930s. The made in England ones are just wonderful!

Happy Birthday! Lovely dishes.

What beautiful plates! I ♥ that they are made in England, too. We got some pretty mugs as gift for Christmas, but they are made in China, and sadly already have chipped and cracked both of them, they're just not quality...
So you were born in 1977? My kids were just saying how we should say we are as old as we are from conception...not just our birth. Happy birthday to you!
