Back to grandmother's dining room

people's favorite dishes and recipes, particularly family members that once were closest to us, brings warm thoughts of the family gatherings from our past. This is not just a deviled egg plate holder, this is Grandmother Pace's deviled egg plate that was used year after year during the holidays. This awesome Fire King milk glass egg plate with 22K gold trim was made by Anchor Hocking in the 1950s. A piece like this adds a special connection to your family. That  sense of belonging that grounds you and ties you to your memories.  If you have an item like this in one of your kitchen cabinets, bring it out when family is around.  Using items that were left to us from a loved one triggers powerful memories. It also connects new family members to the ones no longer with us.

Happy Thanksgiving!
