Before my Mom was a mother

She had her own dreams

A vintage cup and saucer with gilt edges and a red polka dot pattern.

A cup and saucer like this, with the gilt edge rims, was often part of a set of “good china” handed down from generation to generation.

Mom bought it at a flea market, sometime long after I’d left home and she’d taken up the Saturday flea habit from my sister.
