Grandma Wasden's Goblets

This picture and story comes to us from cousins Ed Johnson and Alva Lowe. "Grandpa wanted to bring some beauty into their home. They had homsesteaded and pioneered for several years. One day he came home with a set of a dozen goblets so Grandma could enjoy some "nicer" things. The goblets were decorated with an etched star design. Grandma loved them, but felt they were "too fancy" for pioneers. Apparently she did use them, because this is the only one left. Ed's and Alva's mother, our Aunt Sofe inherited it."

Both of these dishes are very lovely. Even in the hardest of times, beauty was appreciated by our grandparents. Actually bread and milk sounds rather good!
