Yesterday, as I scrolled through my reader, I found this post by Jana. She is talking about how she uses her “fine” china for every day use. Because, it really is silly to have such beautiful china, to have spent so much money on it for your wedding, or whatever, and to never use it.
It got me thinking.
I am pretty sure I have a set of china in my cellar that belonged to my grandmother, or something. I might have to check it out.
We have all read those articles about how we need to treat ourselves and to use the good china, etc. Who does that, though, really?
But, Jana’s post got me thinking. A while ago, my mother gave me a few antique tea cups and saucers that I had considered too fancy or fussy and thought about selling them on eBay. Now, I think I am going to rinse them out and use them for my evening tea. Or my morning coffee.
And I think Jana is right. I am worth it.

Pretty, pretty cups. Are you enjoying them?

I am! They make my sleepy time tea quite lovely.

I used to collect tea cups—I had about 30 of these beautifully delicate little cups and saucers—and I packed them up and put them in storage a couple of years ago because instead of using them, I had them on display and I got tired of dusting them. I think I may have to unpack them and put them in my hutch and start using them again because it did make me feel special to sip from them!

You should! Even just one of them it was delightful.
