This Labor Day Weekend, we decided to clean out all those mysterious boxes lurking in the back of the garage. We found a box I’d inherited, and in there were four beautiful bowls.

These were my grandfather’s. He worked on the Northern Pacific Railroad and somehow acquired them. The pattern is Garnet, and they’re evidently rather rare.

I spoke to a dealer of railroad china, and he made me an impressive offer.

Now’s the difficult part. Decidions! Should we sell them, or do we keep them and hand them down to the kids. They’re so pretty, yet that amazing pricetag is tempting. Lots to think about, but for now – back to the garage cleaning!

Happy Labor Day!

Laura
