I live in Northern California, just a couple hours from the Oregon order, about 40 miles past Eureka where the giant redwoods are and then you go inland and up in elevation to get to our remote home. I'm up in the mountains on 37 acres on Redwood Creek with my husband, 6 cats, 2 mules and a border collie named Bell. We have 2 grown sons and 1 daughter...and 9 grandkids...8 boys and 1 girl.
I've collected Royal Albert exclusively for about 25 years. My favorite patterns are Night and Day, all the colors of Laurentian Snowdrop, English Beauty with the rainbow colored backgrounds, Yuletide (with Poinsettia flowers), Blossom Time and many of the very old and hard to find patterns.
I have approximately 300 RA cup and saucer sets and another 75 RA tennis sets.
