Prairie Gold table, thanks to Montana.
This summer we visited family in the treasure state of Montana, land of big skies,
rivers, glacier parks, Rimrocks, rainbows, geysers, hailstorms, prairie lands and
wheat fields. You feel arrested by beauty at every
turn, so much so that you have to stop, be still, and breathe it into your soul. And of course, amongst the blazing beauty, I fell in love with dishes aptly named, Prairie Gold, treasure indeed.
Back at the ranch (always wanted to say that), it was love at first sight. There in her china cabinet were the most glorious plates and glasses (why didn't I take a
picture?) She told me she found them in
the basement, nobody else wanted them, and she loved them. Her mom said they were given away in detergent boxes, and if you bought a
tractor, you got a whole set. I was hooked. When I returned home I found out
more about them, as well as purchasing plates and glasses on eBay. Got to love eBay.
There are lots of glasses available, but I'm starting with these petite wine/juice glasses. Love the wheat stalks on each side.
It may be because school starts this week, but I'm so in the mood for Fall, harvest golds, warm colors, and the season of thanksgiving. We are blessed to live in this country, to feel God's greatness in the mountains, prairies, oceans, rivers, and around our tables. Blessings and treasures indeed.
