I have a set of dishes from my one of my grandmothers. Most of them are chipped or a little faded.

When I was little and we spent the night and grandma and grandpa's house, we would always have breakfast from the pasta bowls of the set. In fact, I was probably in my 20s before I realized they were pasta bowls. Grandma and grandpa used those bowls every morning, regardless of what breakfast was: cereal, swedish pancakes, eggs, and eventually oatmeal every morning for health reasons.

Two of the pasta bowls have broken since I got them, (I use them contantly). One was slightly faded compared to the others. One of the remaining bowls has almost no pattern left. I suspect that the broken dish marked the end of periodic trips that resulted in breakfast by my brother or cousins or me. The dishes no longer got 'shuffled' and two remained at the top of the pile all the time. The most faded dish, the one I keep on the bottom of the pile, is the one my grandma ate out of every morning for a year after my grandfather died. And then she died too, and they moved to my cupboard.
