Tell us about your collection(s). What do you collect and is there a story behind your collection?
I recently started a collection of glass divided relish dishes. They’re only a dollar or so at the thrift stores, and I use them for serving relishes–nuts, pickles, veges, fruits (mainly small fruits like berries), candies, etc. My grandma did this–I can still remember her delicious bread and butter pickles alongside her pickled beets (all homemade by her, of course)–best part of the meal! So whenever I use one of my little divided dishes, I remember Grandma and all our family gatherings filled with a din of conversation (our German-American family LOVED to talk, and usually all at once–drove my husband nuts when he first came to one of our gatherings!). But he sure loved those bread and butter pickles, so he would just eat while we all talked!
Your turn–tell us!
