Project 52 - Old - Week 16

These week's theme is:

Project 52 ~ OLD

The first thing that I thought of when I heard of this week's theme was ME!  I thought of when I was getting married and the theme something new, something old, something blue.  When I got to the something old I thought that is easy ~ it's me.  But I didn't think you would like another picture of me :)... 
So this is what I decided to go with....  

The doily that the plates are on was made by my great grandmother.  My great aunt gave it to me as a wedding present as she knew that I would cherish something this precious.  I never knew my great grandmother but I remember my mom telling me stories about her.  This doily has a special place on my piano.
The dishes were given by a dear neighbor that lived kitty-corner to us as we were growing up.  She was "grandma" Jones to us even though she had many grandchildren of her own.  She gave me these plate or TV trays as she called them to me when I graduated from high school.  She told me that she had bought them when her eldest daughter was out of school which must be at least 50 years ago.  Grandma Jones passed away a few years after I graduated but I have these dishes to remember her by.
