♪To all the bowls I've loved before♪ -- dishes you've lost along the way?

Are there bowls you ate from in college, plates you had when you were first married, baking pans that your grandmother gave you -- that you have misplaced along the way? Broke? Lost in the separation of possessions?
When I was moved to Korea in 2000 as a following spouse, the military shipped directly to his unit address the 2 boxes of my Ben Seibel Iroquois Informal Accent blue/white, which were gifted to me by my mother as a wedding present as they had been her wedding present casual dishes.
My soon-to-be EX held the boxes hostage over a paperwork issue... and I never got them back.
THIS CHRISTMAS -2013-- mom and my younger daughter found 20 pieces at a thrift store -- an escargot-looking casserole, fruit bowls, salad bowls, soup bowls, vegetable serving bowls, serving bowls, cups, and saucers.
Still want what I had-> turkey platter, plates, salt and pepper shakers, and weird rice bowl/ candle holder things.
But I'm so happy to have the Iroquois blue pieces back!!
So, Hounds, What do you miss?
