And speaking of Grandma Stubbs...

...whom I spoke of in yesterdays post...her name was Alma.  

Alma is also the name of a tiny little town in Colorado that we drove through twice a week on our trips to Breckenridge to ski.  Every time we'd approach/pass through Alma (trust me, approaching and passing through are about one in the same as it's so small),  I'd announce to Shawn and the kids, "Hey, my Grandma's name was Alma".  My saying that was almost like a car game...just before we'd enter town everyone would start saying "we know, we know...your Grandma was named Alma".  

Guess what else is named Alma?  hee hee.  Yes siree, it's the name of this 19th Century transferware pattern!







And speaking of transferware, there are only a few hours left to get over to Maison Decor and enter to win $60 towards any transferware in my shop!

p/s   Yes, to everyone who has asked, I will post Grandma Stubbs's Lemon Cake recipe soon!

  1. Hey, I have a cousin Alma! And if your Grandma was anything like my cousin, she was beautiful inside and out! :-) Love the platter as I do all of your dishes.

  2. I have a good friend who's name is Alma...Alma is a Spanish name, like Dolores and it seems popular names in the USA. Alma means "soul" in Spanish and how wonderful that a trasferware has your grandma's name...maybe it was meant to!! Have a happy week.
