Freda's Luncheon Set - by Betty Hyre

My mother sent me this photo of a painting she had just finished last week. What you are seeing is pink dog wood depression glass, luncheon set that belong to Great Grandmother Freda.

As seen in an old advertisement it originally sold in the 1930's for under three dollars. Freda earned it a piece at a time from the general store.

This has been the issue of friendly banter for weeks. While I have been busy at the grind mother has been painting glass.


  1. It's lovely. Talent runs in your family. How wonderful.

  2. She is a busy painter. I don't know where she finds the time to do it.


It would be great to hear from you.
