Betty Crocker and Silverware

Giving my children some more family history today.

When I was a girl Betty Crocker had coupons on their products worth points that could be redeemed for silverware.  My mother had a shoe box full of these coupons and my grandmother came over to babysit us while my mother and father were away one weekend.

Grandma decided she was going to count points and order silverware for my hope chest.  According to grandma, "Your mother will never do anything with these so we are going to get you some silverware."  I always thought that was cute.

Today some 50 years later I set my table with Betty Crocker's My Rose Onieda silverware and I smile thinking of my precious little grandmother who ordered it for me.

So kids, now you know where the silverware I set the table with daily came from and why it is so special to me.
